We are being asked which compound has a higher intermolecular force.
▪ the temperature at which a liquid change into vapor
▪ influenced by intermolecular forces between molecules
Intermolecular Forces (IMF) are the attractive forces between 2 molecules.
▪ strongest IMF
▪ deals with the attraction between an ion and a polar compound.
• Hydrogen Bonding
Melting and boiling points for benzene, toluene, and phenol.
In which substance, benzene or toluene, are the intermolecular forces stronger?
