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.

the pair of elemets which forms a compound with maximum ionic character is: ​a) Na & C ​b)Cs and F c)Cs and I d)Na and Cl
 
 
B- Cs and F as clearly Cs is most electropositive element and F is most electronegative element and they form most ionic product

for max ionic character large size of cation and small size of anion so answer is CsF APPROVE IF USEFUL

use of Iodine in the refining of zirconium.
 
 
Zirconium Crude metal is heated with iodine in an evacuated vapour to separate from impurities and this decomposes at 1800K to give a pure Zirconium metal and iodine.

If 1.27 g of iodine is liberated,when 10 ml solution of H2O2 is reacted with acidified KI solution.Then the volume strenghth of H2O2 is.?
 
 
Meq of H2O2 = Meq of I2 (w/34)*1000 = [1.27/(254/2)]*1000 w=0.34 g Thus 0.34 g of H2O2will give =(11.2/34)*.34 =0.028 litre =28 ml Thus volume strength of H2O2is = 28/10=2.8...
