In induced dipole-induced dipole bonds, molecules from 2 compounds that do not have a dipole moment (like N-N) are attracted to each other due to slight charges acquired through the electron clouds of each molecule. The electrons surrounding an atom "fluctuate", and create a (+) or (-) charge; this created charge isn't strong enough to be called a dipole moment, but it is enough to attract another molecule of an opposite charge, thus the name "induced dipole".
