Branched or straight chain Hydrocarbons
« on: April 13, 2020, 03:32:39 AM »
The boiling point of branched hydrocarbons is lower than the boiling point of straight chains hydrocarbons (I am talking about Isomers--> same number of Carbon atoms ) Why is this so? What does that have to do with intermolecular forces?

Let's start with what you think and take it from there.  Which intermolecular force governs the attraction between hydrocarbons?  Upon what does it depend?
