    1. acetic acid will donate a proton. Acetylene will also but if you can pick only one answer go with acetic acid.
    2. What do you think, and why, for 2 and 3?

  • Bio-Chemistry -

    For 1- I didn't know what to put either acetic acid or acetylene.
    For 2- I think it's D but i think A also.
    For 3- I think it's B but butyne has a high boiling point to

    #2. B, C, D and E are true. A is not true. The CtripleC is shorter.(stronger bond)
    #3. Here is a secret tip. Go to google, type in boiling point 1-decyne (and the other substances also) and look up the boiling point of each. The longer the chain and the higher the molar mass, the higher the boiling point. IM forces are more because there are more electrons present. 1-decyne must be correct but check it out.
