What are difference between the intermolecular and intramolecular?

The main difference between intermolecular and intramolecular forces is that intermolecular forces exist between the molecules themselves, whereas intramolecular forces exist between atoms within a molecule.

What is intermediate bonding?

In Unit 1 (Ionic Bonding) it was noted that ionic compounds can be polarized which gives them a covalent character. When a molecule has a polar bond, it gives the covalent substance an ionic character. To regard a compound as “covalent” or “ionic” is too simplistic for understanding AS chemistry.

What is inter ionic bond?

As you might guess from the name, these bonds occur in the case of ionic compounds. Here, the electrons of the bond are completely sequestered by one atom, which has the negative charge. The other atom (or group) has a positive charge. Ionic bonds are very strong and they require a lot of energy to break.

What forces are in pentane?

Octane and pentane have only London dispersion forces; ethanol and acetic acid have hydrogen bonding. Hydrogen bonding is much stronger than London dispersion forces. Because octane is larger than pentane, it will have more London dispersion forces, thus pentane has the weakest intermolecular forces.

How does RNA pair with DNA?

DNA and RNA bases are also held together by chemical bonds and have specific base pairing rules. In DNA/RNA base pairing, adenine (A) pairs with uracil (U), and cytosine (C) pairs with guanine (G). The conversion of DNA to mRNA occurs when an RNA polymerase makes a complementary mRNA copy of a DNA “template” sequence.

What are the 4 differences between DNA and RNA?

DNA is a double-stranded molecule, while RNA is a single-stranded molecule. DNA and RNA base pairing is slightly different since DNA uses the bases adenine, thymine, cytosine, and guanine; RNA uses adenine, uracil, cytosine, and guanine. Uracil differs from thymine in that it lacks a methyl group on its ring.
