A dipole-induced dipole attraction is a weak attraction that happens when a polar molecule induces a dipole in an atom or in a nonpolar molecule by disturbing the arrangement of electrons in the nonpolar species.

Induced dipoles can occur when one molecule with a permanent dipole repels another molecule's electrons.

Induced dipoles are caused when a non-polar compound (no dipoles) comes close to a polar compound (with dipoles). Because the polar compound has partial charges, when the electron cloud of the non-polar compound is close, the negatively charged electrons are repelled from the negative pole and attracted to the positive pole. This temporary change in electron distribution, caused by the charges of a polar compound, is an induced dipole.

In induced dipole, or London force, the dipole is created by the movement of electrons, causing a temporary dipole because one end is more negative than the other.

An induced dipole is created by a non-polar molecule coming into contact with a polar molecule. The charged polar molecule repels the electrons of the non-polar molecule, causing the electrons to shift creating a charge.
