Unformatted text preview: lower VP and higher BP) 4) if you're considering both polar and nonpolar compounds, are the masses similar? If greatly different, need to consider that a very heavy nonpolar will have a lower VP and higher BP than a light polar (in many cases) V IMF (and the strengths thereof) also play roles in a liquid's: a) surface tension (stronger IMF --> greater surface tension) b) viscosity (stronger IMF --> higher viscosity) c) capillarity (competition between cohesive forces within liquid via IMF and adhesive forces between liquid and capillary tube walls)...
