Dipoles

What's the difference between dipole-dipole and dipole-induced dipole?

A dipole induced dipole attraction is a weak attraction that results when a polar molecule induces a dipole in an atom or in a nonpolar molecule by disturbing the arrangements of electrons in the nonpolar species. Dipole-dipole forces are attractive forces between the positive end of one polar molecule and the negative end of another polar molecule.
