The stronger the intermolecular forces, the more energy it takes to overcome these interactions and to cause the substance to boil. Therefore, molecules with strong bonds have high boiling points, and molecules with weak... More »

Intermolecular forces are responsible for the physical properties of a substance, such as its melting or boiling point, viscosity, solubility, surface tension and evaporation. The types of intermolecular forces are ionic... More »

Intermolecular forces are the attractive forces between molecules that hold them together. There are four types of intermolecular forces: hydrogen bonds and ionic, dipole and induced dipole forces. More »

The element Tungsten has the highest melting and boiling points of any known substance, melting at 6,192 degrees Fahrenheit and boiling at 10,031 degrees Fahrenheit. For this reason, Tungsten is used in many applications... More »

The additional molecules in milk keep its boiling point slightly higher than water, which boils at 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit. The chemical composition of milk dictates the boiling point and so there i... More »

The boiling point of regular household vinegar is around 213 degrees Fahrenheit. Vinegar that possesses a higher concentration of acetic acid will require a higher temperature to boil. More »
