Vapor Pressure and Boiling Point
The pressure of vapor present at equilibrium with its liquid is called the equilibrium vapor pressure – or, more commonly – the vapor pressure of the liquid. Vapor pressures of liquids vary widely. Liquids with high vapor pressures are called volatile – that is, they evaporate rapidly. Vapor pressure of a liquid at a given temperature is determined by the intermolecular forces acting among the molecules. There is a relationship between vapor pressure and boiling point of a liquid. This topic explores vapor pressure, and its relationship to boiling point.
