Are ionic and covalent bonds intermolecular forces?

By textbook, a dipole-dipole interaction is an intermolecular force while a covalent bond, as well as an ionic bond, is a chemical bond. It seems to me that, yes, the forming of ions is a chemical reaction, but the ionic bond is an intermolecular force.
A.

Do covalent bonds have strong intermolecular forces?

When one of these substances melts or boils, it is these weak 'intermolecular forces' that break, not the strong covalent bonds. Simple molecular substances are gases, liquids or solids with low melting and boiling points. Your web browser does not have JavaScript switched on at the moment.
  • Do covalent bonds have weak intermolecular forces?

    Hydrogen, ammonia, methane and water are also simple molecules with covalent bonds. All have very strong bonds between the atoms, but much weaker forces holding the molecules together. When one of these substances melts or boils, it is these weak 'intermolecular forces' that break, not the strong covalent bonds.
  • Why covalent bonds do not conduct electricity?

    A covalent bond is formed between non metal atoms, which combine together by sharing electrons. Covalent compounds have no free electrons and no ions so they don't conduct electricity.
  • Do covalent bonds conduct electricity?

    Although solid ionic compounds do not conduct electricity because there are no free mobile ions or electrons, ionic compounds dissolved in water make an electrically conductive solution. In contrast, covalent compounds do not exhibit any electrical conductivity, either in pure form or when dissolved in water.

What is the difference between intramolecular bonds and intermolecular forces?

intermolecular forces-interaction between two different molecules or compound. intramolecular forces-interaction between same molecules or compound. Intramolecular forces appear inside the molecule, they are the ones that bind atoms together to form a molecule. Covalent bonds are an example of intramolecular force.
  • What is the difference between intramolecular and intermolecular bonds?

    Intramolecular bonds are the bonds which hold atoms together in a molecule such as the covalent bonds in CO2. These bond are very strong relative to intermolecular bonds which are more appropriately called intermolecularforces. The intermolecular forces (IMF) are generally much weaker than bonds.

  • What types of intermolecular forces are present in alcohol?

    Hydrogen bonding isn't the only intermolecular force in alcohols. There are also van der Waals dispersion forces and dipole-dipole interactions. The hydrogen bonding and the dipole-dipole interactions will be much the same for all the alcohols, but the dispersion forces will increase as the alcohols get bigger.
