Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The given boiling point order for inert gases must be explained with reason.

Concept Introduction:

Boiling point is defined as temperature at which vapor pressure of a liquid becomes equal to its atmospheric pressure. It depends on the intermolecular forces of attraction within the molecules. Inert gases are known to have weak van der Waal forces of attraction.

Explanation

Noble gases have only weak van der Waal force or London force. The London force depends on surface area...
