How is the boiling point affected by the intermolecular forces? What is the trend?

Boiling point increases when the strength of the intermolecular force increases. For instance, molecules that have induced-dipole attraction have a lower boiling point that molecules that interact through ionic interactions.

Increasing strength of intermolecular forces causes the boiling point to increase.

The strengths of the intermolecular forces are ion-ion > ion-dipole > hydrogen bonding > dipole-dipole > dipole-induced dipole > LDF/induced dipole-induced dipole

I am still a little confused on boiling point and how you would tell the higher one when given two polar molecules

A molecule with stronger IMFs will have a higher boiling point because more heat energy is required to overcome the interactions.
