Solution: Why do all common polymers have lower vapor pressure than all alcohols with less than 10 carbons? A. The polymers have an amorphous solid structure B. The alcohols have hydrogen bonds C. The alcohols are soluble in water D. The polymers have higher molecular weight E. The alcohols will have higher ΔHvap than the polymers
