NEET Chemistry The Solid State Questions Solved


Assertion :  The melting point decreases in the order.
Water > ethyl alcohol > diethylether > methane

Reason : The strength of the intermolecular forces between these molecules follow the order
Water > ethyl alcohol > diethylether > methane

Show Options

(A). Assuming that the melting poins are mainly affected by the intermolecular forces, the strength of the intermolecular forces between these molecues follow the order
Water > ethyl alcohol > diethylether > methane.
Hence, the melting point decreases in the order.
Water > ethyl alcohol > diethylether > methane.
