FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to rank the given compounds in order of increasing vapor pressure.


Vapor pressure

▪ is the pressure exerted by a vapor in equilibrium with its condensed phase
▪ highly influenced by intermolecular forces between molecules


Intermolecular Forces (IMF) are the attractive forces between 2 molecules.

Ion-dipole

strongest IMF
▪ deals with the attraction between an ion and a polar compound.

 Hydrogen Bonding
