Explain in detail, which of the following pairs would have a higher melting point NH3 or P4

  • Chemistry -

    Don't you recognize that NH3 is a gas at room T and P is a solid at room T?

  • Chemistry -

    my teacher wants me to use the characteristics of aggregrate i know that NH3 is a polar molecular and i think P4 is a network aggregrate and i to use this information to answer this question?

    Sara: you miss DrBob's point. If one is a gas at room temp, and the other solid, then the solid has to have a higher melting point. Somehow there must be a great divide here on this question.
