Rank the following in order by increasing boiling point and explain why?
CH3Cl Rn CH4 CH3-CH2-OH
The lightest molecule is CH4, it should have the lowest boiling point.
Rn is next since it has no H bonding and no dipole.
CH3Cl should be next. It has a molar mass less than Rn but it has a dipole moment.
CH3CH2OH should be the highest since it has hydrogen bonding.
