Step 1

A chemical compound consists of two or more different elements which are bonded with each other through different types of chemical bonds. A chemical bond is an interaction between two atoms that occurs due to valence shell electrons of an atom.

Step 2

Different intermolecular forces are also found between molecules that depends on the type of molecule and chemical bond in the molecule. Some common type of intermolecular forces are dispersion forces, hydrogen bonding, ionic force, dipole-dipole force etc.

Step 3

Polar molecules have ion-dipole and dipole-dipole interactions between the molecules. The non-polar molecules like hydroc...
