We are being asked to determine which among the choices has the largest enthalpy of vaporization
Enthalpy of vaporization
In this case, use the concept of intermolecular forces to determine which has the largest enthalpy of vaporization where the stronger the IMF, the higher the enthalpy of vaporization
Recall that 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
Which of the following substances most likely has the largest enthalpy of vaporization?
