Answer

Molecular solids are held together by various kinds of forces, namely dispersion forces, hydrogen bonds, dipole-dipole forces, and electrostatic forces. After all, as a result of these intermolecular forces, the atoms of different molecules are attracted, causing many different molecules and atoms to be attracted to each other in a molecular solid.
