In effect, "A" determines the degree of "stickiness" of the van der Waals attraction and "B" determines the degree of "hardness" of the atoms (e.g marshmallow-like, billiard ball-like, etc.).
The electrostatic contribution is modeled using a Coulombic potential.
The electrostatic energy is a function of the charge on the non-bonded atoms, their interatomic distance, and a molecular dielectric expression that accounts for the attenuation of electrostatic interaction by the environment (e.g.

A given central ion exerts a simple Coulombic force on ions in the first "shell of ions" but after this the Coulombic force is screened by this shell of ions and becomes progressively more screened as the distance increases.

We have discussed dipole-dipole bonding in some detail and we recognize that this bonding arises because of the Coulombic attraction of two dipoles for one another.
A dipolar molecule has a q that is less than one, but an ion has some integer charge (chloride is -1, sodium is +1, etc.) A dipole-ion attraction should actually be stronger than a dipole-dipole attraction, although it is less strong than the ionic attractions in the ionic solid.

Because ionic and covalent bonding uses electrostatic attractions between areas of full charge, the resulting force of attraction is strong.
Definition: Intermolecular Forces are electrostatic forces of attraction that exist between an area of negative charge on one molecule and an area of positive charge on a second molecule.
Because the molecules are polar, the force is either a dipole-dipole attraction or a Hydrogen bond.

The force of attraction which holds together atoms in molecules and crystals is called a chemical bond.
Covalent bonding is a form of chemical bonding characterized by the sharing of one or more pairs of electrons between atoms, in order to produce a mutual attraction, which holds the resultant molecule together.

In the Coulombic attraction theory (CAT), first proposed by Sogami in 1983, the mean field interaction between charged particles has a weak, long-range attraction via their counterions, whereas in DLVO theory the long-range interaction is purely repulsive.
Attempts to apply DLVO theory to the phenomenon failed and the system was thought to be `anomalous', until the case was reopened by neutron scattering in the late 1980's when some experiments at the ILL in Grenoble gave strong indications that the vermiculite system was governed by the long-range Coulombic attraction predicted by Sogami.
The installation of the new high-angle detector bank on LOQ has improved these studies immensely, because it is now possible to observe diffraction effects from the collapsed crystalline phase (region III) of the system, as shown in figure F10.3.

 Chemistry 1020--Spring 2000  Lecture 14 Notes
The force of attraction depends on the size of the charge on the ion and the distance between them.
When hydrogen atoms are attached to very electronegative, very small atoms (specifically F, O, and N), the polarity of the bond is very great, and the positive end of the bond at the hydrogen atom is capable of getting very close to and interacting with the lone pairs on other F, O, or N atoms.
These bonds are considered special because the strength of attraction is quite a bit more than the attraction between dipoles.

The Coulombic attraction of nearest-neighbor cations and anions accounts for the bulk of the lattice enthalpy of an ionic compound.
The nearest neighbor Coulombic attraction depends upon the ion charges and the distance between the ions.
The changes in distance between ions is relatively small compared to the unit changes found in the ion charges, so MgO (+2, —2) has a roughly 4× larger lattice enthalpy than NaCl or LiF (+1, —1).

Given the strong Coulombic attraction between Na and Cl ions in solid sodium chloride, it is at first sight surprising that the latter should dissolve in water.

 Sodium, Hydrogen Halides and Melting
Although dispersion forces are important here as well, they are much weaker than the Coulombic interaction between the ions and so we need to only focus on the Coulomb interactions to understand the trend.
This law says that the attraction get weaker as the halide ion gets bigger, because the center of positive charge on the Na+ is farther away from the center of negative charge on the halide.
Since the ionic radius increases as you go down the column, the Coulomb attraction gets weaker as you go from NaCl to NaBr and the melting point becomes lower as a result - although the dispersion force increases, it does not increase by nearly as much as the coulomb attraction decreases.
