I just have one question from the 6R practice test:

#23-

I understand that the boiling point of glycerine is higher than the b.p. of isopropyl alcohol because it can H-bond more, but how can it be quantified more than that? How are we suppose to know it is 10deg higher?

Thanks for the help...

Good question:confused: I knew it would be more but I had no idea how much more it would be. Those tricky bastards+pissed+
