Ethane Vs Methanol

Satisfactory Essays
13. There is a very large difference between methanol and ethane in their boiling points despite their similarity in molar mass. Boiling points do not depend on the molar mass, instead it depends on the hydrogen bond. Methanol is an alcohol therefore it has hydrogen bonds, meaning that it will also obtain a high boiling point. Ethane is a gas therefore does not obtain hydrogen bonds which results in having a low boiling point. 14. a) The space elevator concept suggests that we must consider the cable’s material and design in order for the elevator to withstand the tension caused its own weight. That being said the cable is expected to be made out of strong and durable material designed in a specific way where the cable can hold the weight
