Intramolecular forces are not intermolecular forces !

Why do covalent compounds and ionic compounds have different melting points?

Melting points are a reflection of the intermolecular forces and intramolecular forces of the compound. The stronger the intermolecular force, the more energy it takes to bring it to a different state.

Do noble gases have a weak intermolecular force?

The covalent bond is an intramolecular bond.An example of compound having covalent bonds is carbon dioxide - CO2.

What is the weakest a covalent bond hydrogen bond or an ion?

hydrogen bonding is considered to be a intermolecular force which is much weaker than any intramolecular force (chemical bonds covalent or ion)

Which type of force is stronger intramolecular or intermolecular force?

Intermolecular forces are the forces between molecules which hold two or more of them together; intramolecular forces happen inside of the molecule, & are the forces holding the atoms together witch form the molecule.

Are covalent bonds stronger than ionic?

No. Ionic bonds are typically stronger. it is because ionic bond has more intermolecular force of attraction.
