  2. For #1 I think all three because there's hydrogen bonding between the O-H, there's dipole-dipole between C-H and there's Londond dispersion between the individual H.

    If that's the case, then all three would apply for #2 as well.

    Am I close?

  5. the intermolecular force acting on this molecules is hydrogen bonding because if hydrogen in molecule is attached with nitrogen, oxygen and floride it forms a hydrogen bonding

    In terms of its structure and intermolecular forces, why is neoprene able to stretch? I want to say it's because its carbons form a long chain which easily stretches, but I'm not sure how intermolecular forces factor into that.
