    Cohesive force is the intermolecular force between molecules of any substance which causes a tendency in molecules to resist separation. Intermolecular cohesive force increases as distance between molecules decreases. As the molecules in solid are spaced more closely than the molecules in liquid, intermolecular cohesive force in the liquid is less than that of solid.
