Figure 3 Figure 4 The Van der Waals Forces Even when ions are not present one still sees intermolecular forces. These forces are called Van der Waals forces. The Van der Waals forces are weaker than the coulombic forces. They also have a shorter interaction length dipole—dipole: The strongest of the Van der Waals forces with the longest
