Suggest, giving reasons, which substance in each of the fol- lowing pairs is likely to have the higher normal melting point (Lewis structures may help your arguments): (a) HCl or NaCl; (b) C2H5OC2H5 (diethyl ether) or C4H9OH (butanol); (c) CHI3 or CHF3; (d) C2H4 or CH3OH.

When you are comparing melting points, you have to analyze the intermolecular forces of the molecules; each force has a different melting point.
