Problem 86P

PROBLEM 86P

For each pair of solids, determine which solid has the higher melting point and explain why.

(a) Fe(s) and CCl4(s)

(b) KCl(s) or HCl(s)

(c) TiO2(s) or HOOH(s)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 86P

Here, we are going to determine which solid has the higher melting point.

(a) Fe(s) and CCl4(s) : CCl4(s) has the higher melting point than Fe(S). This is because CCl4(s) is held together by covalent bond whereas Fe(s) held together by metallic bond.

(b) KCl(s) or HCl(s): KCl has the higher melting point than HCl(s). This is because KCl is formed through ionic bond whereas HCl is formed by covalent bond. The ionic bond is stronger than covalent bond, so that KCl has the higher melting point.

(c) TiO2(s) or HOOH (s): TiO2(s) has the higher melting point than  HOOH (s). This is because TiO2(s)is formed via ionic bond whereas HOOH (s) is formed via covalent bond. In covalent bond,  very little force of attraction between molecules. So it has comparatively lower melting point than ionic bond.
