How strong are hydrogen bonds compared to covalent and ionic bonds?

Hydrogen bonds are intermolecular forces, whereas ionic and covalent bonds are bonds between atoms. Therefore, hydrogen bonds are weaker than ionic and covalent bonds.

Hydrogen bonds are weaker than ionic and covalent bonds, but hydrogen bonds are the strongest of the intermolecular forces.

Compared to covalent and ionic bonds, hydrogen bonds are the weakest because they are so easily broken just as it is easy to form them. So they are rarely fixed on one atom.

Hydrogen bonds are the weakest amongst the bonds. Ionic is next strongest, and covalent bonds are the strongest bonds

Hydrogen bonds are weaker than ionic and covalent bonds mainly because hydrogen bonds are an intermolecular force while ionic and covalent bonds are an intramolecular force which are generally way stronger than intermolecular forces.

Hydrogen bonds are weaker than ionic and covalent bonds.
