Give a possible explanation why the Rf values of the dyes on the same chromatrogram are not all identical.

Question

Give a possible explanation why the Rf values of the dyes on the same chromatrogram are not all identical. 

check_circleAnswer

The ions or compounds have different polarities and polarity is the factor on which the Rf value is dependent on.

Those that have similar polarities with the chromatogram would travel in a shorter distance because of the strong intermolecular force formed between them, while non-polar subs...
