hi,
I am wondering if benzyl acetate is polar or nonpolar? because it has a non polar benzene ring but also it has the ester bit attached so i am confused.
Also i cant seem to understand the vander waal forces that are in it.

if anybody could help that would be super

A little polar but not much. Here is a good site to compare different polarities.

THANKS A MILL

do you know the intermolecular forces by any chance?
