    Mind you. between Br2 molecule only van der waals exist.

    But between NH3, got hydrogen bond.

    But Br2 is one of two liquid elements at room twmperature and pressur. while nH3 is a gas.

    There, clearly NOT always van der waals weakest as it depends on the molecule.

    Read up on chemguide perhaps.
