Part 2: Intermolecular Forces and Properties
Polarity affects the type and strength of intermolecular forces a substance will experience. In turn, the strength of intermolecular forces affect some properties of the substance. We will now investigate this further by looking at the different types of intermolecular forces, various substances, and their properties. Please use the data provided to answer the questions. Then, use your observations to make predictions about properties of substances.
Intermolecular Forces and Evaporation
In order for molecules to evaporate from the surface of a liquid, they must have enough kinetic energy (obtained from collisions with neighboring molecules) to break the attractions (intermolecular forces) they have for their neighbors. When the molecules escape from the gas phase, they carry this kinetic energy away with them. Therefore, evaporation is an endothermic process that cools the remaining liquid.
Figure 1: Evaporation of liquid particles.
Molecules that are not very sticky (i.e. those that have small intermolecular forces) can evaporate rapidly, causing the temperature of the liquid to drop quickly. Conversely, molecules with strong intermolecular forces will not experience much evaporation and little cooling will be observed.
The change in temperature during a two minute evaporation period was recorded for several substances and organized in the table below. Use the following data to answer the next few questions:

4. Of the two liquids above, ________ would have the stronger intermolecular forces.
5. Of the two liquids above, ________ would show the greater change in temperature during evaporation in a two minute time period.
Intermolecular Forces and Boiling Point
The boiling point is the temperature at which the liquid and gas exist in equilibrium. At this temperature the liquid molecules have gained enough energy to overcome the attractive intermolecular forces and escape into the gas phase. Also at this temperature, the gas molecules have lost enough energy to succumb to the intermolecular attractive forces and condense into the liquid phase. Use the following table to answer the questions below:
