1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Compare the critical temperature of dioxygen and water.

3. The attempt at a solution

I dont know what critical temperature means here. If someone could tell me what that means, Im pretty sure I could answer the question.

Ouch. The critical temperature of water will be higher than that of dioxygen cause of hydrogen bonding. Right? Kinda dumb... dunno what I was thinking of...physics probably...
