is carbon dioxide an example of ion-dipole force?

I say no, because it is nonpolar since ion-dipole force is an attraction between an ion and polar molecule.

    You are correct and CO2 is not polar although each of the C=O bonds are polar (but the individual polarities cancel due to the symmetry of the CO2 molecule, in this case it is linear.)
