  1. Cohesion
    liquids that have strong intermolecular forces tend to stick together
  2. Cohesion leads to _____  ______
    Surface Tenison
  3. Surface Tension
    where the surface of a liquid with high cohesion/IMFs is more difficult to penetrate
  4. Adhesion
    this is the attraction of a liquid to another substance
  5. Capillary Action
    • -the combination of adhesion and cohesion
    • -as water attracts and rises up a surface due to adhesion, the mlcls will pull along other mlcls due to cohesion
  6. Boiling
    the process of evaporation at the boiling point
  7. Evaporation
    the process of evaporation below the boiling point
  8. Vapor Pressure
    a pressure exerted by the resulting vapor (gas) of mlcls escaping from the surface of the liquid at a particular temperature
