Intramolecular force vs Intermolecular force

Postby Siwa Hwang 3G » Thu Nov 12, 2020 7:42 pm

What is the difference between intramolecular force and intermolecular force? And which category would hydrogen bond belong to?

Intramolecular forces are the bonds formed between atoms to create a molecule. Intermolecular forces are between interacting molecules and includes ion-ion, ion-dipole, dipole-dipole, dipole-induced dipole, induced dipole-induced dipole, and hydrogen bonds.

Intramolecular forces are attractive forces that occur within a molecule. For example, atoms within a molecule are attracted to one another by the sharing of electrons(bonding).

Intermolecular forces are attractive forces between molecules. Hydrogen bonding would be an example of this since the hydrogens of molecules form a slight attraction with nearby F, O, or N atoms.

Intermolecular is between other molecules, and Intramolecular is within the molecule. Also as a sidenote to remember, Intramolecular forces are stronger than intermolecular.
