Solids, Liquids and Gases

Postby 405289292 » Mon Nov 11, 2019 10:14 pm

Are there any relevant exceptions to the idea that at a specific temperature, strong bonds will result is something being more solid when compared to something with weak bonds?

To my knowledge, there are generally no exceptions to the rule that stronger bonds means that something is more likely to be tightly packed together (solid or liquid) state than something with weaker bonds, when the temperature is the same. If there are any exceptions, unless Dr.Lavelle mentions it in lecture I doubt we will be tested on it.

I agree with the person above me; this is typically a pretty good rule. However, stackability of molecules also plays into whether or not they are solid at a given temperature. Stackability is a result of the structure of a molecule--rectangular is better for stacking.
