Asked by Daniel

What is the difference between intermolecular forces and bonds?

Intermolecular forces such as London forces, permanent dipole-dipole and H-bonds holds molecules together in liquid or solid. Chemical bonds hold atoms or ions together, and chemical bonds are much stronger than intermolecular forces, i.e chemical bonds require more energy to break compare to intermolecular force.

Intermolecular forces are the forces that hold two or more molecules together. A chemical bond is an attractive force between two or more atoms.
