PIRA 5A60.15 Molecule Kit
Photo Shows the Demonstration Used by the University of Texas
Left: benzene molecule, Right: butane molecule
Instructors are able to make various molecules if needed for demonstration.
Balls with three holes in a row are meant to fit double/triple bonds
Request a specific molecule you need! We'll build it for you ahead of time.
Key for different molecule correspondence with colors is shown in the pictures above
- Intermolecular interactions are electrostatic due to positive and negative attractions between
molecules, but the molecules themselves are also electrostatic due to charges on protons and
electrons. The strength of attraction in intermolecular interactions depends on the magnitude of
charges and the distance between them, described by Coulomb's law.
