    if/when

    How are you?

    What is the difference between (1) and (2)?

    1, If you need help, give me a call.
    2, When you need help, give me a call.

    Thank you in advance.

    In the second case, the speaker expects that the listener will need help eventually; in the first, s/he is unsure whether help will ever be required.
