Question:

Hydrogen bonds are formed in many compounds e.g., H2O, HF, NH3. The boiling point of such compounds depends to a large extent on the strength of hydrogen bond and the number of hydrogen bonds. The correct decreasing order of the boiling points of the above compounds is :

(i) HF > H2O > NH3

(ii) H2O > HF > NH3

(iii) NH3 > HF > H2O

(iv) NH3 > H2O > HF

Solution:

Option (ii) is the answer.
