# Arrange the following substances in increasing order of forces of attraction

Arrange the following substances in
increasing order of forces of attraction between the particles – Water, Sugar, Oxygen.

Answer - Oxygen < Water < Sugar

Explanation: Oxygen is a gas, thus force of attraction is negligible between particles. Water is a liquid, thus force of attraction between particles is more than liquid and less than solid.

Sugar is a solid, thus force of attraction between particles is greatest.
