What is the meaning of the term intramolecular?
In the interior of the chemical molecule
A physical change as no intramolecular bonds are broken (i.e. in the gas phase water still has the chemical formula H2O). A chemical change is one that breaks intramolecular bonds (i.e. if water were to split into H2 and O2 that would be a chemical change). Also ,please note before I used the term intramolecular NOT intermolecular. I hope this helps!
Intramolecular forces are the forces within a molecule or between atoms or different parts of a molecule. Intermolecular forces are the forces between two molecules. It is normally said that intramolecular forces are stronger because they involve chemical bonding and that is certainly correct. The energy necessary to break chemical bonds typically dramatically exceeds the energy associated with forces between to distinct molecules. One occasionally hears the term intramolecular forces being used to refer to…
