Predict which compound will have the higher boiling point and explain how you made your choice by including intermolecular forces.
1. H2O or CH2O
2. CS2 or CH4

  • Chemistry -

    1. We would expect H2O to have the higher boiling point due to hydrogen bonding.
    2. We would CS2 to have the higher boiling point due to dispersion forces.
