Which has a higher boiling point? CHI3 or CHF3?

CHI3 has a higher boiling point because the atomic size is bigger which leads to the increase of the atom's surface area.

CHI3 because Iodine is a larger atom which means that it has more electrons, and therefore, has stronger induced dipole induced dipole interactions.

CHI3 would have the higher boiling point. Since Iodine is a larger atom than Fluorine it has greater polarizability and can induce stronger dipoles.

CHI3 because the size of it makes the forces stronger

CHI3 does due to the size being greater than CHF3 so the boiling point increases for I.

CHI3 has a higher boiling point because on the periodic table, Iodine is on a lower period than Fluorine. Following the periodic trends, this indicates that iodine has a larger size. With this larger size, Iodine can have stronger induced dipoles.
