Expert Answer:

Dipole-dipole forces are present between the molecules of a polar compound. For example, due to the difference of electro negativity, values of the bonded atoms; the molecule of the hydrogen chloride becomes a polar molecule. Its chlorine end is called negative region and the hydrogen region is called positive region. Due to these poles, the molecules of hydrogen chloride attract each other. These forces of attraction are called dipole-dipole forces
