  1. Do you have any thoughts on this? For example, you know that the addition of a solute decreases the vapor pressure of a liquid.

  2. vapor pressure increases with temperature, if the IMF's are low the vapor pressure is high and vice versa. my notes have nothing on surface area so i do not believe surface area has any affect. so far, i have temperature, solute, and type of liquid.
