How do intermolecular forces (IF) and internal kinetic energy (KE) compare in liquids? A. IF < KE B. IF = 0, KE is large C. IF ≥ KE D. IF > KE **not sure what this would be? thank you!

    since the liquid state is a bonded state, namely the molecules of a liquid are bonded each to other, then I think the fourth option, namely: IF> KE

    I'm not sure, since a liquid can evaporate, so maybe the third option is possible too

    and also, there is this last problem that also has the same answer choices as the above one.. How do intermolecular forces (IF) and internal kinetic energy (KE) compare in gases? which would this one be?

    I think the third one, since each liquid can evaporate at any temperature

    for gases the answer is simple, we have: KE > IF

    okay! so for the first one in comparison to liquids, we have choice C? and the second one in comparison to gases is choice A?
