No, because rubbing alcohol molecules are polar and alcohol molecules can hydrogen bond with each other holding them together. That is why methane is a gas a room temperature and rubbing alcohols (all types of alcohols in fact) are liquids at room temperature

Predict which molecules have a greater attraction for each other C3H8O molecules in liquid rubbing alcohol or CH4 molecules in methane gas?

C3H8O molecules in liquid rubbing alcohol would have greater attraction for each other than CH4 molecules in methane gas?


Predict which molecules have greater attraction for each other C3H8O molecules in liquid rubbing alcohol or CH4 molecules in methane gas?

The C3H8O molecules will have a greater attraction in liquid rubbing alcohol than ch4 molecules in methane gas. This is due to the hydrogen bonding and dipole intermolecular forces that would occur between the polar alcohols. The nonpolar methane and methane gas will only experience London dispersion forces.


Which molecules have a greater attraction for each other C3H8O molecules in liquid rubbing alcohol or CH4 molecules in methane gas?

C3H8.O .HERE O IS NASCENT. C2H5OH. reacts readily


Does rubbimg alcohol have a greater attraction than methane gas?

The rubbing alcohol because methane is a gas and the bonds between gases are not very hard to break where as rubbing alcohol is a liquid and there a little harder to break


Is rubbing alcohol evaporating from the skin a chemical or physical change?

It is a physical change. The molecules of the alcohol are still there, there are just spread out.


Why does 1 cup water 1 cup rubbing alcohol equal less than 2 cups?

Because water and rubbing alcohol are mutually soluble. Liquids have quite a bit of empty space between the molecules. When something is soluble, its molecules will fit in the spaces between the molecules of the liquid. So water molecules fit in beween alcohol molecules, alcohol molecules fit in between water molecules, and the mixture takes up less room than the 2 separate liquids.


Does rubbing alcohol have acetone in it?

No, rubbing alcohol has oil and isopropyl alcohol in it.


What do you get when you mix rubbing alcohol and water?

Basically you get weaker rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol is already a mixture of water and isopropyl alcohol.


Can you drink rubbing alcohol as an internal disinfectant?

Do NOT Drink Rubbing Alcohol It can cause blindness. Rubbing alcohol is "isopropyl" alcohol, not the same chemical as grain alcohol, ("ethyl" alcohol). Don't drink it! Rubbing alcohol is POISONOUS to drink!


What is rubbing alcohol made out of?

It is a mixture of denatured alcohol, water and agents added to make the alcohol unpalatable to drink and sometimes colorants. There are two common types of rubbing alcohol, Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol and Ethyl Alcohol Rubbing Alcohol.


What chemical removes sharpie stains?

Rubbing alcohol, and things (Example: Rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover) that would smell similar to a sharpie. Best choice though, would be rubbing alcohol. Why? Rubbing alcohol (or also called isopropanol/Ispropyl) is a solvent that has polar molecules (molecules with a positive charged molecule that sticks to a negative charged molecule). If you sniff a sharpie, it has a sharp, alcohol smell, right? Sharpies have n-propanol alcohol, n-butanol, and diacetone alcohol in them. They have pretty similar structures to rubbing alcohol. All alcohol have polar molecules. There is a "like dissolve like" rule. This means Polar solvent+Polar solvent=dissolve/removal. OR non-polar solvent+nonpolar solvent=dissolve/removal. The closer the molecule and chemical make-ups are, the more likely they are to dissolve or be removed.

Is Rubbing alcohol polar?

Yes, rubbing alcohol is polar because all alcohol is polar. :) Yes, rubbing alcohol is polar because all alcohol is polar. :)


Which evaporates more quickly- rubbing alcohol that has been refrigerated or unrefrigerated?

Rubbing alcohol that is unrefrigerated because the warmer it is the faster it evaporates, the molecules of the refrigerated move slow which enables the slow evaporation, while the unrefrigerated molecules dissipates more readily than that of the refrigerated.


Is rubbing alcohol the same as Isopropyl alcohol?

Yes, rubbing alcohol is a common name for isopropyl alcohol.


Can you use isopropyl alcohol for rubbing alcohol?

Isopropyl alcohol and rubbing alcohol are not the same thing. For most uses, yes you can. This is because: • Rubbing alcohol may contain either isopropyl alcohol or ethanol. • Rubbing alcohol is a mixture of compounds (type of denatured alcohol) whereas isopropyl alcohol is not.
