Which substance in each pair would be expected to have a lower boiling point? Explain your reasoning.

msp;  a .  CH 3 OH or CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 OH b .  CH 3 CH 3 0 r CH 3 CH 2 OH c .  H 2 O or CH 4

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The substance among methanol and propan-1-ol with lower boiling point should be explained.

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.

Explanation

Both methanol and propan-1-ol will be participating in intermolecular hydrogen bonding...

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The substance among ethane and ethanol with lower boiling point should be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Hydrogen bonding is stronger intermolecular force as compared to London force.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

The substance among water and methane with lower boiling point should be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Hydrogen bonding is stronger intermolecular force as compared to London force.
