    Can someone highlight the differences between these and give examples of each please? My teacher said that covalent bonds are the same as intermolecular bonds. Also, what's electrostatic forces of attraction? Thanks

    covalent bonds= intra
    intermolecular bonds exist between molecules.
    Electrostatic force of a ttraction is the attrreaction between any positively charged particle or ion and a negatively charged particle or ion.

    you realise that intermolecular forces are also electrostatic forces of attraction...
    Intermolecular forces consiset of van der Waals' forces, permenant dipole-dipole forces, and H-bonding. Intramolecular forces consist of covalent, ionic, metallic and dative covalent bonding.

    Yes I do, hence why I said they can exist between particles (intramolecular forces) e.g. electrons and protons, but also between ions or partial ions, e.g. between molecules. (y) And for gcse, we don't need to no about Van der Waal's, nor am i going to confuse him by explaining it.

    fair enough. I just hate how oversimplified GCSE science is to the point where it just becomes wrong.

    Fairs, but realise that if it was complicated many people would fail. I can't wait till we get taught that electrons aren't real, nor are they in single shells!

    Exactly! The 2,8,8,8,8... thing has got to be most annoying thing though
