1. How do intermolecular forces differ in different alcohols?
2. Why does oxaloacetic acid has a higher Ka than succinic acid?
a. fewer carboxyl groups
b. a less polar structure
c. addtional functional groups that make it more soluble in water
d. fewer hydrogen atoms that can transfer to the oxygen atom in H2O
Would the answer be letter c?
The longer the chain the more dispersion forces (from the chain) but the lower H bonding (from the OH)
