which substance has the greatest intermolecular forces of attraction between molecules ?
1)propanone
2)ethanol
3)water
4)ethanoic acid

dont really understand, please help

  • Chemistry -

    Look at the polarity of the molecule and hydrogen bonding.

  • Chemistry -

    Water has hydrogen bond along with ethanol..so water is the strongest one
