A bond describes the attraction between two atoms. These bonds form due to electrostatic forces which pull positive and negative atoms and/or molecules together. There are many different types of bonds such as 'weak' bonds eg. van der Waals forces, Hydrogen bonds and Dipole-Dipole bonds, or 'strong bonds' such as covalent and ionic bonds.
