how do you figure out intermolecular forces in a molecule?

1. You learn (memorize) the types of forces and what causes them.
2. You go through example molecules with those forces.
3. You learn to recognize types of molecules (fats, covalent long chain, dipoles, etc).

    The longer the hydrogen bond, do the Intermolecular Forces increase or decrease. So if molecule A has a H-bond with a length of 1.7 A and molecule B has a H-bond length of 1.8 A would molecule A or molecule B have a stronger IMF?

    In terms of its structure and intermolecular forces, why is neoprene able to stretch? I want to say it's because its carbons form a long chain which easily stretches, but I'm not sure how intermolecular forces factor into that.
