(c) Rn

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 70P

Boiling point is dependent on the dispersion force of the molecule or atom. Since, the magnitude of the dispersion force depends on the electrons in the atom or molecule which can polarize in response to an instantaneous dipole. This is dependent  on the size (or volume) of the electron cloud. The dispersion force would be  high when the electron cloud become more which...
