although helium atoms do not combine to form He2 molecules is it fair to say that London dispersion forces (induced dipole forces)are what attract He atoms weakly to one another?
The other choices are
dipole-induced dipole forces
Hydrogen bonding
Ion-dipole forces
dipole-dipole forces
Am I correct in my thoughts about this question and answer
Thanks andy
