Solution: Why is I2 a solid while Cl2 is a gas even though they are both halogens?1. I2 is more polarizable than Cl2.2. I2 has a smaller dipole than Cl2.3. I2 is less polarizable than Cl2.4. I2 has a larger dip

Problem

Why is I2 a solid while Cl2 is a gas even though they are both halogens?

1. I2 is more polarizable than Cl2.

2. I2 has a smaller dipole than Cl2.

3. I2 is less polarizable than Cl2.

4. I2 has a larger dipole than Cl2.

5. I2 has H-bonding and Cl2 does not.
