We are being asked to rank the given compounds in order of decreasing 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.
▪ strongest IMF
▪ deals with the attraction between an ion and a polar compound.
• Hydrogen Bonding
Rank the following compounds in order of decreasing boiling point:
KCl, CO2, CH2O
Rank from highest to lowest boiling point. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them.
