Recall: What state does water exist in at room temperature?

Unlike molecular compounds of similar molecular masses, water relatively high freezing and boiling points. Explain why this is in terms of intermolecular forces.

Water also has a high surface tension, which allows for water droplets to bead up on surfaces. 

Furthermore, water has a low vapor pressure. Describe the effect of temperature on the vapor pressure of water.

Explain how all of the properties of water as mentioned above are related. Hint: Think about what the causes for all of the above properties are.
