Why does acetone evaporate faster than ethanol yet still has a higher surface tension?
Acetone evaporate faster than ethanol because of Hydrogen Bond concept.
Acetone being a ketone has no direct
Therefore, more stroger physical bonds have to be destroyed in ethanol, than in acetone. Hence, acetone evaporates faster than ethanol inspite of having higher surface tension.
