Hi! Can someone please explain dipole induced dipole and how it's different from other forces along with an example?

A dipole induced dipole describes the forces between a polar molecule and a molecule with no charge. An example is HCL and Ar. Argon has no charge and HCL has a positive dipole on hydrogen and a negative dipole on chlorine. The Argon's electrons will be drawn to the positive charge on the hydrogen because electrons have natural negative charge. The dipole induced dipole attraction doesn't last long and it's supposed to be instantaneous. Dipole induced dipole are likely to happen the more polar the molecule is and the more electrons the non polar molecule has. I think this intramolecular force is different from the other ones because it's the only one that describes forces between a molecule that is polar and one that isn't. All of the other forces address how polar molecules affect other polar molecules.
