Key Questions

Here are the formulas for the energy of each interaction.
London Dispersion force
#V = −3/4(α^2I)/r^6# where
#α# is the polarizability,#r# is the distance, and#I# is the first ionization energy. The negative sign indicates the attractive interaction.DipoleDipole Interaction
#V = −(2/3)(μ_A^2μ_B^2)/((4πϵ_0)^2r^6)1/(k_BT)# where
#mu_i# are the dipole moments,#epsilon# is the permittivity of the medium.#k_B# is Boltzmann's constant, and#T# is the Kelvin temperature.IonDipole interaction
#V = −(qμ)/((4πϵ_0)r^2)# where
#q# is the charge on the ion.EXAMPLE
Calculate the dipoledipole interaction energy at 298 K between two HF molecules. Assume that the positive and negative ends are separated by 400 pm. ϵ₀ = 8.854 × 10⁻¹² C²N⁻¹m⁻²; µ = 1.92 D;
#k_B# = 1.381 × 10⁻²³ J•K⁻¹Solution
µ = 1.92 D ×
#(3.336 × 10⁻³⁰" C·m")/(1" D")# = 6.41 × 10⁻³⁰ C•m#V = −(2/3)((μ_A^2μ_B^2)/(4πϵ_0)^2r^6)1/(k_BT)# #V = −(2/3)((6.41 × 10^30" C·m")^4)/((4π × 8.854 × 10^12" C²N⁻¹m⁻²")^2(400 × 10⁻¹⁰" m")^6) × 1/(1.381 × 10⁻²³ J·K⁻¹ × 298" K")# = 5.37 × 10⁻²¹ JOn a molar basis,
#V# = 5.37 × 10⁻²¹ J × 6.022 × 10²³ mol⁻¹ = 3240 J/mol = 3.24 kJ/mol
