NH3 is heavier then CH4, and NH3 has hydrogen bonding.

Yes, Boiling point of ammonia, NH3: - 33,34 0C Boiling poit of methane, CH4: - 161,6 0C

Both NH3 and HCl exhibit hydrogen bonding as intermolecular forces, whereas CH4 does not. This makes CH4 have a lower boiling point. Since there are 3 hydrogen atoms in NH3 and only 1 in HCl(g), the intermolecular forces would be expected to be greater in NH3 than in HCl.

NH3 is a polar molecule, so the molecules attract each other like magnets.CH4 is completely symmetrical, so it is non polar.Therefore, NH3 has a higher boiling point because it takes more energy to knock its molecules away.

Boiling point of NH3: -33,34 0C Boiling point of NF3: -129,1 0C The boiling point of ammonia is higher.

NH3 Has a Higher EN than PH3 and will exhibit Hydrogen bonding. Because of this, NH3 has a stronger bond with PH3 so its boiling point is higher (harder to break bonds, more temperature required).

The boiling point of NH3 is -33,34 0C.

NH3 and NH3 CH4 and CH4 CO2 and CH4 NH3 and CH4 CO2 and CO2

Methane: -164 0CPhosphine: - 87,7 0CAmmonia: -33,34 0CWater: +100 0C

Ammonia: -33,34 0C Nitrogen trifluoride: -129 0C

NH3 is polar and CH4 is non polar.SO ther cannot be mixed

CH4 stands for methane.NH3 stands for Ammonia.

Hydrogen bonding in NH3 and H2O, London dispersion forces in CH4

Ammonia (NH3) has hydrogen bonding intermolecular forces, whereas methane (CH4) does not. In addition, ammonia is polar, and so also has dipole-dipole forces and methane does not. Thus, it takes more energy (higher temperature) to boil and melt ammonia than it does methane.

Ammonia (NH3) Melting points: −77.73 °C, 195 K, -108 °F Boiling points: −33.34 °C, 240 K, -28 °F

CH4 is tetrahedral in shape.NH3 is trigonal pyramidal.

NH3 is more soluble as it is polar.

NH3 is a weak base.CH4 is a neutral compound

The highest boiling point beween these compounds: potassium iodide (KI) with 1 330 0C.

BH3 is non polar.Inter moleculer forces are much weaker Wander Voals forces.NH3 have hydrogen bonds among molecules.They are very strong comparing to Vander Woals forces.So NH3 have high boiling point.

NaF, BaSO4, KBr AND NaOH are salts CH4 is an organic compound NH3 are base HNO3 is acid

None. CH4 is methane. NH3 is ammonia. You have made some kind of error.

NH3 is more polar than AsH3, this is the same as comparing H2O and H2S.

No. Methane is CH4 whereas ammonia is NH3.
