Intermolecular Forces are the attractive forces between 2 molecules. Intramolecular Forces are the bonding forces within a molecule. 

Intermolecular vs. Intramolecular Forces

Concept #1: Understanding the difference between intermolecular and intramolecular forces 

Intermolecular forces influence the physical properties of compounds, whereas intramolecular forces influence the chemical properties of compounds. 

Concept #2: The First and Strongest Intermolecular Force

Concept #4: The Third Intermolecular Force

Concept #5: The Fourth Intermolecular Force

This intermolecular force deals with the attraction between a polar and nonpolar covalent compound
