How can you tell whether a force is strong or weak?

Are you talking about intermolecular forces, because you just have to remember them.
In order from strongest to weakest, it goes:
hydrogen bonding
dipole-induced dipole
induced dipole-induced dipole
You can also tell if the intermolecular forces are stronger if the melting/boiling point is higher. It requires more energy to break the bonds.

does anyone have any tips on how to identify forces as strong or weak?
