Answer to Question #8661 in Organic Chemistry for Bsball123
i have to type up a 2 page double spaced paper that is based on the following question: Explain increasingly higher boiling points in Alkanes in terms of intermolecular forces.
by the way im a sophmore in high school
Thank you for your help. If you could, i need to have this done by monday or it will be late.
Alkanes with longer chain forms a stronger connections with neighboringmolecules than alkanes with short connection. This is due to intermolecularinteraction For example, ethane has a higher boiling point than methane since it has more Van der Waals forces (intermolecular forces) with neighbouring molecules.
