What is the boiling point of a compound having 102 degree freezing point?
as far as i know the B.Pt. is defined as " when the vopour
pressure of the liquid is equal to the atomospheric pressure then
it is said to be the boiling point of the liquid." similarly "when
the vapuor pressure of the solid is equal to atmospheric pressure
then its corresponding temperature is called melting point of that
compound." so a compound may be a low melting one but the same
compound may be ahigh boiling liquid. this is due to the inter
& intra molecular forces that exists in the molecules. so there
is no specific equation that a compound having a m.p. of 102c will
have a b.pt. of some particular value.
