Explain why water has higher boiling and melting point as compared to H2S ?(PLs ans URGENTLY)
This is a result of the significant hydrogen bonding present in the water molecule.
Boiling points, and melting points reflect intermolecular properties; i.e. the interactions between particles, between molecules. In water, the hydrogens are bound to oxygen, a strongly electronegative element. The oxygen atom polarizes electron density away from the bond to give
Of course, hydrogen sulfide is isoelectronic, and isostructural with the water molecule, however, the degree of hydrogen bonding in
