How are intermolecular forces different from the forces that bond atoms together into molecules? How are they similar?

  1. Arora

    Intermolecular forces:
    - Between different molecules of the same substance
    - London Forces, Dipole-Dipole Interactions, Hydrogen Bonds
    - Do not involve any sharing of electrons between atoms


    Intramolecular forces:
    - Between different atoms in the same molecule
    - Covalent/Ionic bonds which involve the sharing or donation of electrons between atoms

  2. bobpursley

    Arora mostly has it on target. In general, the intermolecular forces are weaker than the intramolecular forces that bond atoms together.
