Intermolecular forces are forces between two molecules. Few examples we learned are dipole-dipole, ion-ion, dipole-induce dipole, etc.

Intermolecular forces are forces between molecules most of the time resulting from dipole moments. They are different from intramolecular forces which are chemical bonds that hold atoms together. Intermolecular forces are far weaker and can be easily broken apart for the most part. Hydrogen bonds, london dispersion forces, and van der waals forces are the main intermolecular forces.
