Problem 102P

PROBLEM 102P

Explain the observed trend in the boiling points of the compounds listed. Why is H2O atypical?

Compound

Melting Point

H2Te

−2 °C

H2Se

−41.5 °C

H2S

−60.7 °C

H2O

+100 °C

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 102P

Find:

Here we have to explain the trend of boiling points of the following compounds, H2Te, H2Se, H2S and H2O.

Explanation:

Step 1:

Higher the boiling point,  higher will be the  forces because more thermal energy needed to separate the molecules in liquid state. Even though Sulfur is more electronegative than Se or Te , the size of the molecules is a bigger factor in their interactions. As we move down a group, the atomic size increases hence more energy will be required to break a molecule. Hence the boiling point also increases as we go down a group.

H2S< H2Se<H2Te

H2S = 212 K

H2Se = 232 K

H2Te = 271 K
