Problem: Two nonpolar organic liquids, hexane (C6H14) and heptane (C7H16), are mixed.Do you expect Hsoln to be a large positive number, a large negative number, or close to zero?

FREE Expert Solution

BOTH hexane (C6H14) and heptane (C7H16) are NON-POLAR.


This means that the only intermolecular force of attraction (IMFA) that exist between them are London Dispersion forces (LDF) which is the WEAKEST of all IMFAs.
