Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Question 126. Which will have the largest heat of vaporization?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well the heat of vaporization correlates with the melting points. At room temperature Cl2 is a gas and H2O and HCl are both liquids. NaCl is a solid at room temp so wouldn't it have the highest heat of vaporization

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh. I see. so we take room temperature into account?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I noticed I tried looking this up (heat of vaporization for NaCl & wikipedia lmao says it doest have a value)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1http://www.pleasanton.k12.ca.us/fhsweb/morris/APchem/ch%2010/Practice%20test%20MC.pdf idk if im allowed to post links but this one has similar compounds and states that NaCl has the highest heat of vaporization look at question 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm coming up with nothing either for NaCl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@sweetburger i saw that problem don't get why though... maybe because it's a solid?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well at room temp NaCl is a solid where all the others are liquids or gases

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but it's heat of vaporization (l) > (g) not heat of fusion.. don't know why i'm kind of confused.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I dont see how it could not be NaCl. It has a very large molecular mass compared to the other compounds in question except for which Cl2 has a higher mass but NaCl is in a strong lattice and Cl2 just has weak disperson forces holding it together. All together I dont see how NaCl would not have the highest H of Vaporization.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not sure if that logic is completely sound^ but its my attempt to reason

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes its (l)>(g) and if some of the compounds are already liquids or gases and NaCl is a solid then it would be much harder to turn NaCl into a gas than the other compounds

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah your logic makes perfect sense man.. i just didn't understand why there was no value but both of you are right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok I'm going to post another one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@sweetburger that last point helped me out a lot, like NaCl is a solid so it would be harder to vaporize it.
