    Ionic bonds are generally stronger than any other bond due to the presence oppositely charged atoms present in an ionic compound.

    For example, NaCl is an ionic compound and it will have the strongest bond.

    Whereas covalent bonds are the weakest as they are formed by sharing of electrons. Hydrogen bonding is defined as a bonding which exists between a hydrogen atom and an electronegative atom like O, N and F.

    Therefore, we can conclude that given bonds are ranked from strongest to weakest as follows.

    the bond between sodium and chloride in the NaCl molecule > the bond between atoms in a metal > the bond between hydrogen and oxygen in a water molecule > the van der Waals bond between adjacent hydrogen atoms.
