The heat of vaporization will increase.

Work Step by Step

The heat of vaporization describes the energy required to vaporize a given liquid. If the intermolecular forces for the given liquid are strong, a lot of energy will need to be added to overcome the intermolecular forces before the substance will vaporize. Consequently, the heat of vaporization will increase as intermolecular forces increase.
