#1

Explain the effect of increasing temperature of a liquid on intermolecular forces operating
between its particles. What will happen to the viscosity of a liquid if its temperature is increased?


#2

As the temperature of a liquid increases, kinetic energy of the molecules increases which can overcome intermolecular forces. So, the liquid can flow more easily, this results in decrease in viscosity of the liquid.
