dear student,


Alkanes experience inter-molecular Van der Waals forces. The stronger the force, the greater will be the boiling point of the alkane.


As branching increases, the surface area of the molecule decreases which results in a small area of contact. As a result, the Van der Waals force also decreases which can be overcome at a relatively lower temperature. Hence, the boiling point of an alkane chain decreases with an increase in branching.

HCO3 ANION EXIST AS DIMER DUE TO HYDROGEN BOND. YES OR NO? EXPLAIN?
 
 
HCO 3 - doesnot have hydrogen bonding.Hydrogen bonding is mainly the property of covalent compounds with polar bonds. But this is an ionic salt and thus does not show hydrogen bonding.

you cant say its ionic bcz the bond between H+ and CO3- is ionic and CO3- is covalent
