Two liquids, n-pentane and 1-butanol, have nearly the same molecular weight, but significantly different temperature values. Why is there a difference between these two substances, based on their intermolecular forces?
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?
Answer/ explain the following in terms of intermolecular forces and properties of the substances referred to in each situation. 1. Why is it that if a glass is slightly filled above the brim with water, the liquid does not overflow?
