Arrange the following substances in increasing order of forces
of attraction between the particles— water, sugar, oxygen.
We know that,
The amount of force of attraction in different states of matter, in increasing order is as follows
Gas → Liquid → Solid
- Water is a liquid at room temperature.
- Sugar is a solid at room temperature.
- Oxygen is a gas at room temperature.
Hence, the amount of force of attraction in the above-mentioned things, in increasing order is as follows
Oxygen → Water → Sugar.
