Would you expect H2O or H2S to be more volatile at the same temperature and pressure? Why?

  1. You would expect the boiling point to be higher for H2O than for H2S because of hydrogen bonding in H2O. The problem didn't ask about boiling point, you say? Yes it did. It asks for volatility, that is vapor pressure, and that leads to boiling point.
