Hi, I missed the slide where he mentioned the other names for Induced Dipole-Induced Dipole? I know that they are all explaining the same thing which explains that the fluctuating electron distribution which results in fluctuating dipoles.

An induced dipole is formed due to random electron movement. Sometimes, randomly, an electron cloud will form more on one side of a molecule than another, creating a temporary chance "induced dipole". This chance dipole then can induce a dipole in a neighboring molecule as it pushes or pulls electrons. Induced dipole-induced dipole interactions are really weak and always happening, but in nonpolar molecules, they are the only force between molecules.
