Solution: Krypton (Kr) has a higher boiling point than Ar because of itsA) hydrogen bonding.B) higher polarizabilityC) permanent dipole momentD) ionic bondsE) greater ionization energy

Problem

Krypton (Kr) has a higher boiling point than Ar because of its

A) hydrogen bonding.

B) higher polarizability

C) permanent dipole moment

D) ionic bonds

E) greater ionization energy

Solution

For this problem, we are being asked to determine why Kr has a higher boiling point than Ar

Recall that boiling point relies on the intermolecular forces present in compounds

The stronger the IMF, the higher the BP

For monoatomic gases like noble gases. Kr and Ar has dispersion forces as its IMF
