One factor is the Polarizability of electrons in certain compounds, which is when eletrons in an atom or molecule cause e- distortion in a nearby atom or molecule. As the molar mass of a molecule increases, the strength of dispersion also increases, which is why molecules like I2 are solid at room temp while F2 and Cl2 are gasses. Hope this helps!
