We are being asked to rank the given compounds in order of increasing 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.
▪ strongest IMF
▪ deals with the attraction between an ion and a polar compound.
• Hydrogen Bonding
Rank the following compounds in order of increasing vapor pressure.
(a) A < B < C < D
(b) D < C < B < A
(c) A < D < C < B
(d) B < C < D < A
(e) A < C ≈ D < B
