To form a gas, the molecules of a liquid must overcome the intermolecular forces of attraction that bind them in the liquid state. As these forces of attraction become stronger, what happens to the boiling point?

the boiling point:increases, decreases, or remains constant

  • chemistry -

    Number of molecules increases

  • chemistry -

    stay the same
