How are intermolecular forces different from chemical bonds?

Intermolecular forces are the result of chemical bonds. Chemical bonds are the sharing of transfer of electrons whereas intermolecular forces are the interactions that happen because of charges. Think about magnets A molecule acts like a single magnet. While it can connect with other magnets, they are never absorbed into each other because each magnet is held together by chemical bonds.

Intermolecular forces occur between separate molecules while chemical bonds occur within one single molecule.

A chemical bond is an attractive force between two atoms, sharing or exchange of electrons. Intermolecular forces are forces that occur between two or more molecules, and are much weaker than bonds.
