is this answer right/okay?
question : IN TERMS OF ATOMIC STRUCTURE, EXPLAIN WHY VAN DER WAAL'S FORCES IN LIQUID AREGON ARE VERY WEAK.
my answer: Having argon 8 electrons in its outer electronic level has great symmetry and stability, so the Van der Waal’s forces are very weak. Van der waals forces are momentary dipole- induced dipole which are weak. Also argon particles is of single atoms with electrons that are closer to the nucleus, which mean that the delta positive and negative are strongly attracted together so the cloud can not be easily polarised, because the charges are equal to each other. Which means that the electron cloud is not easily disrupted and it equal, so the van der waals forces are temporary easily broken/ loosen.
