Think about the effect an increase in surface area (by increasing the number of carbons on a molecule) has on intermolecular forces (specifically van der waals forces).

i think you're right. :) increase of carbon atoms will increase the boiling point :)

it does ! by increasing the surface-area-contact between molecule, van der waals attractions between adjacent molecules increase and so does energy needed to separate these apart.
