Explain the difference in the boiling points of AsF3 (63 8C) and AsF5 (253 8C).

The difference in boiling points between these two compounds is due to the difference in dipole moments and electronegativity.

AsF5 has more electrons. Therefore has more polarizability, which means a higher boiling point.
