The current question is inspired by this existing question: At what frequency does a non-polar molecule acquire a dipole able to participate in London Dispersion forces?. In the comments and answers, it says that there is always a dipole (but the time-average of these dipoles is zero), so it does not make sense to ask how long the dipoles last, or how frequently they appear.
I am wondering how long it takes the neighboring molecule to adjust its electron density to the temporary dipole. Also, I wonder if this is the correct picture: that one molecule has the temporary dipole and the other responds with an induced dipole. Or is it more accurate to say that the neighboring atoms find some common groove of swaying their charge distribution.
