The boiling point of methane is NOT higher, but lower than of propane (about 119 degrees lower), as can be seen from the table below:
Methane: Bp. −161 °C, 112 K
Propane: Bp. -42.1, 231.1 K
The boiling point of propane is approx. 42,2 oC.
Acetone ( CH3OCH3) has a higher boiling point than propane ( CH3CH2CH3 )
Hydrogen Bonding in ethanol but not in propane
Boiling point of ethanol is higher than its isomer methane due to the presence of hydrogen bond in ethanol
The boiling point of propane is -42.09oC.
I think propane is higher??
Yes, Boiling point of ammonia, NH3: - 33,34 0C Boiling poit of methane, CH4: - 161,6 0C
Metahne does not have a higher boiling point than methane. Fluoromethane, CH3F, has a boiling point of 195K, -78.2C, methane, CH4, has a boiling point of 109K approx -164 C. I make that fluoromethane has a higher temeprature boiling point than methane. This is what you would expect, London dispersion forces will be greater in CH3F as it has more electrons than CH4. CH3F is polar and there will be dipole dipole interactions which will not be present in CH4.
The boiling point of Methane is 83F
Water has stronger hydrogen bonds than Methane. More energy is required to break them, hence the difference in boiling point
No, propane does not have a high boiling point since it exists as a gas at room temperature. It has a boiling point of -42.09oC.
Because octane has more carbons, and the more carbons you have the higher the melting point. also octane is a gas that is very close to nonane (which is the first liquid) and that would mean it has a larger boiling point that methane (which is a gas that is the first one CH4). that is why octane has a larger boiling point that methane. Also, you can also figure it out the boiling points of each and look at the differences.
The intermolecular forces in neon are weaker than those in methane
Yes, propane is actually a gas at room temperature, hexane is a liquid. The reason for this is that hexane is a larger molecule than propane, so there are more intermolecular forces between molecules in hexane, giving it a higher boiling point.
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.
Octane has a higher boiling point than pentane because octane has a larger number of carbon atoms than propane
The boiling point of methane is -161 degrees Celsius or -278.5 degrees Fahrenheit
Butane because it contains more atoms and is heavier.
This is because butanes chain length is longer than propanes making it harder to reach its boiling point
Methane is gas derived from liquid methane.
This is because methane is more stable or happier than ethane. It has a shorter carbon chain and less branching making it the harder one to boil.
Octane. The boiling point of straight-chain alkanes increases within its homologous series (meaning methane has a lower boiling point than ethane, which is lower than propane, etc). Hexane : Boiling Point 69 o C Octane : Boiling Point 125.5 o C
69C for hexane& -42 for propane
The boiling point of water is 100 0C at 760 mm col. Hg. The boiling point of methane is -164 0C.
Indeed it can. At the boiling point liquid methane is in equilbrium with gaseous methane, so both exist simultaneously.
