u have learned the difference between intermolecular forces and intramolecular bonds. What if intermolecular “Forces were stronger than intramolecular bonds? What differences could you observe in the world?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The difference in the world should be explained if the intermolecular forces were stronger than the intramolecular bonds.

Concept Introduction:

Intramolecular bonds are formed between two or more atoms forming a molecule. Bonds are formed by sharing electrons between two participating atoms. For this reason, the force acting between two atoms to form intramolecular bonds is stronger.

Intermolecular forces refer to weak forces of attraction or repulsion acting between two molecules.

Explanation

Covalent molecules are formed by sharing electrons between atoms to form intramolecular bonds also known as covalent bonds.

Intermolecular forces are attractive or repulsive forces that exist between ionic or polar molecules.

If intermolecular forces become stronger than intramole...
