Is there a connection between boiling point and IMF Strength? If so, why or why not?

There is definitely a connection, the larger the intermolecular forces between two molecules of the same compound the higher the boiling point will be. This is because the forces between them are stronger and therefore more kinetic energy must be added to break these bonds. Any molecule with a higher amount of forces between itself and its surrounding molecules can be expected to increase in boiling and melting point.

The more IMF there are, the stronger the boiling point will be because it will take more heat for the many forces to break apart, thus resulting in a higher boiling point.

There is a connection between boiling points and IMF strength. The stronger the IMF, the more energy required to break the bond, thus, requiring more heat. In essence, the stronger the IMF interaction, the higher the boiling point.

As IMF increases in strength then the boiling point/melting point increases in order to break them

So that means that the stronger the bond strength, the higher the boiling point?

The more and larger the intermolecular forces, and the stronger they are, the higher the boiling point.
