What type of intermolecular force is so2?
Beside this, what type of intermolecular force is exhibited by sulfur dioxide?
Being a linear molecule, CO2 is non polar and hence the only force acting between CO2 molecules is London Dispersion Force which the weakest intermolecular force of attraction. While SO2 is an angular molecule and hence polar, dipole-dipole interactions work between its molecules along with London Dispersion Forces.
Beside above, does so2 have hydrogen bonding? SO2 can't form hydrogen bonds because there is no hydrogen. The bonds are polar as the S is slightly positive and the O is slightly negative, so there is some intermolecular bonding happening there, but without hydrogen, they are not classified as hydrogen bonds.
Also to know is, what is the strongest intermolecular force in so2?
SO2 is a polar molecule. Generally dipole-dipole forces are stronger than LDF forces.
What is the bond of so2?
The SO2 has a bond angle of 120-degree. One single atom of Sulphur is bonded with two atoms of Oxygen covalently. It causes a repulsion of electron pairs to form the 120-degree angle.
