Help end world hunger




  1. Does not depend much on atmospheric pressure
  2. Decreases with impurities (Melting Point Depression, Colligative Properties, Eutectic Point, Heat Capacity, Sand or Salt on the Road, Water Purification, Zone Refinement, Confirmation of Unknown Identities) Antifreeze, Ice Cream
  3. Increases with size and weight
  4. Increases with more polar covalent bonds including hydrogen bonding
  5. Decreases with branching
  6. Increases with better crystal packing
    1. Even versus odd normal alkanes
    2. London dispersion forces, van der Waals forces (Cis and Trans on Triglycerides)
  7. Increases with higher rotational symmetry
