Could you help me with this question:
A molecule of chloroform, CHCl3, has the same shape as a molecule of methane CH4. However, methane's boiling point is -164 degrees celcius ans chloroform's boiling point is 62 degrees celcius. Explain the difference between the two boiling points.
one is a nonpolar molecule, the other is not, and will exhibit hydrogen bonding.
