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

Does ammonia have a higher boiling point than methane?

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


Why does methane have a higher boiling point than Fluromethane?

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.


What is the boiling point of methane in Fahrenheit?

The boiling point of Methane is 83F


Why does water have a higher boiling point than methane?

Water has stronger hydrogen bonds than Methane. More energy is required to break them, hence the difference in boiling point


Does propane have a high 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.


Why is the boiling point of octane so much higher than the boiling point of methane?

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.


Why is the boiling point of methane higher than neon?

The intermolecular forces in neon are weaker than those in methane


Would hexane have higher boiling point than propane?

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.


Why the boiling point of butane is higher than boiling point of methane?

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 higher boiling point than pentane because octane has a larger number of carbon atoms than propane


What is boiling point of methane?

The boiling point of methane is -161 degrees Celsius or -278.5 degrees Fahrenheit



Why does butane have a higher boiling point than propane?

This is because butanes chain length is longer than propanes making it harder to reach its boiling point


Why does methane have a boiling point?

Methane is gas derived from liquid methane.


Why is the boiling point of methane higher than the boiling point of ethane?

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.


Which has the highest boiling point hexane or octane?

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


The boiling point of propane and hexane?

69C for hexane& -42 for propane


Boiling points water and methane?

The boiling point of water is 100 0C at 760 mm col. Hg. The boiling point of methane is -164 0C.


Can methane be a gas at -161.5c as it's boiling point?

Indeed it can. At the boiling point liquid methane is in equilbrium with gaseous methane, so both exist simultaneously.
