    Google would be an excellent source to get this information from.

    Just to give you some more information, these are various things that could be marking points on a London Forces question:
    • Electrons are always moving
    • At any instant there could be a momentary uneven distribution of charge
    • This is a temporary dipole
    • This temporary dipole could induce a dipole in another molecule or atom, which would induce a dipole in another and so on
    • Thus, at any instant there are many induced dipole-dipole interactions between atoms or molecules. These are London Forces.
    There could be others depending on your exam board, but I always liked to include all of those in any London Forces questions just to be safe. Look up some mark schemes specific to your exam board and see what they're after.
