Have you ever wondered how to go about explaining the relationship between enthalpy of vaporization, boiling point and intermolecular forces? A thorough understanding of these 3 concepts is essential when it comes to tackling many questions that are often asked in the Chemistry 3.4 external standard.
Notice how the presenter uses graphes and diagrams to aid in his explanation.Old addage of “a picture says a 1000 words”. Use them as they can save you both time and space during the final exam.
Also, it is a good approach to draw the moelcules one beside the other, so you can make quick comparisons between the structures themselves and the resulting bp’s and/or enthalpy of vaporistion.
This a very common type of question, regularly asked in the external exam for Chemistry 3.4- Demonstrate understanding of thermochemical principles and the properties of particles and substances
