Van der Waals Interaction

  1. Mar 26, 2012 #1
    I need to report about the Van der Waals interaction in our Quantum Mechanics class. Can someone please help me sort things out about Van der Waals interaction? How do go think should I go about it? In our book, the only thing discussed is the Van der Waals interaction between two hydrogen atom in their ground state.

    I know the 3 types of Van der Waals interaction
    1. dipole-dipole
    2. dipole-induced dipole
    3. dispersion

    but where should I put the Van der Waals interaction between two hydrogen atom in their ground state? Where is it under?

    Thanks for the help in advance.
