FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to rank the given compounds in order of decreasing boiling point.

Boiling Point

▪ 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.

Ion-dipole

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

 Hydrogen Bonding
