## anonymous one year ago How will the rate of evaporation of a liquid exhibiting stronger intermolecular forces than water compare to the rate of evaporation of water? It will be greater. It will be less. They will be equal. The vapor pressure would be twice as great.

evaporation =$liquid \rightarrow gas$

now, the stronger the intermolecular forces the more energy you would need to break the bonds between molecules, and allow them to escape into the gaseous phase. so if say something has stronger intermolecular forces it's rate of evaporation would be less than water

vapor pressure is greater, would imply that it has weaker intermolecular forces so that's wrong. and that it's more more volatile than water. if it evaporates at a much greater rate then that implies weaker intermolecular forces than water. so that's wrong they cant be equal because the question told you that IMF of the compound was greater than water,
