    VDW in NF3 and Hydrogen bonding and VDW in NH3, correct?

    how do I demonstrate these in a diagram?

    In NF3 F will be delta - and N will be delta plus due to electronegativity?

    In NH3 Hydrogen bonds and VDW forces are present as Nitrogen is more electronegative than hydrogen, these make the hydrogen atoms delta plus, and the hydrogen bonds I show them as hydrogens attracting other nitrogens in other nearby molecules?

    For the hydrogen bonds you show the nitrogen atom attracting the hydrogen atom on another molecule.

    so N is delta minus then? :

    yes
    thanks a lot!

    what sort of effects would these hydrogen bonds have on the molecule then and others nearby?

    NF3 has permanent dipoles, not instantaneous ones.

    because F has significantly higher electronegativity?

    F is the most electronegative element XD

    Oh yes, NOF are the top 3 aren't they.
