In general, inorganic compounds have higher melting point than that of organic compounds.

Higher than what? Some organic compounds (e.g. propane, butane) have very very low boiling points making them gases at room temperature. Certain inorganic compounds (e.g. tungsten carbide) have boiling points so high that before those compounds boiled all organic compounds would not only have boiled but would have decomposed into their elements or very simple inorganic carbon compounds (e.g. carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide).

The melting points of organic compounds will vary and are related to the boiling points. Organic compounds that have strong cohesive forces will generally have higher melting points.

Actually the melting point depends on the molecule under consideration. But, in general inorganic compounds have higher melting point than organic compounds. However, there are many exceptions to this statement.

Ionic compounds have higher boiling points than covalent compounds.

Ionic compounds have higher boiling points than molecular compounds because the bonds that hold them together are stronger and so need more energy to break them.

Viscosity is the thickness of the compound. The thicker the compound the higher the intermolecular forces. The higher the intermolecular forces the higher the boiling point is.

KCl is an ionic compound and glucose is a molecular compound. Ionic compounds have higher boiling points than molecular compounds.

Ionic compounds have higher melting and boiling points than moleculars compounds. They do not vaporize as easy,

Organic compounds require a higher activation energy to react; thus, they are more stable in heat. The ability of many organic compounds to resist heat is accounted for by this property.

In general, ionic compounds have higher conductivity, melting points, and boiling points than molecular compounds.Let me again stress that in general.

Compounds with strong intermolecular forces have higher melting and boiling points.

Ionic compounds have higher boiling points than molecular compounds because the bonds that hold them together are stronger and so need more energy to break them.

Both compounds are straight chained alkanes. (General formula CnH2n-2) The general rule is the bigger the molecule in a group of similar compounds the higher boiling point it has. Methane is C1, butane is C4 - much bigger.

As a generalization, the melting and boiling points of ionic compounds are substantially higher than the corresponding characteristics of covalent compounds. However, there are some ionic compounds with lower melting points than many covalent compound. Some substituted tetra-ammonium salts in particular are liquid at room temperature. There are also some covalent compounds such as diamond with higher melting points than most ionic compounds.

Compounds with fully ionic bonds have higher boiling points than compounds without this feature, except for a few unusual, extensively three-dimensionally-bonded covalent compounds such a diamond and silica.

Generally compounds with ionic bonds have high melting and boiling points.

This is false. Ionic compounds have higher boiling points than molecular compounds. For example, the boiling point of the ionic compounds copper(II) oxide, CuO, and sodium chloride, NaCl are 2,000 degrees C and 1,413 degrees C, respectively. The boiling point of the molecular compounds carbon tetrachloride, CCl4, and water, H2O are 76.72 degrees C and 100 degrees C, respectively.

Ionic compounds have stronger bonds, that is, more energy is required to break an ionic bond than a covalent bond, and more energy is available at higher temperatures.

Ionic compounds have higher melting and boiling points than molecular compounds do. The electronegativity difference in ionic compounds makes their bond much stronger.

C16H34 does. Because it has a higher molecular weight
