12-1a) HCl is not a very heavy diatomic molecule; London forces are expected to
only be moderately important. Hydrogen bonding is weak in the case of H-Cl
bonds; Cl is not one of the three atoms (F, O, N) that from strong hydrogen
bonds. Finally, because Cl is an electronegative atom, and H is only
moderately electronegative, dipole-dipole interactions should be relatively
b)In Br2 neither hydrogen bonds nor dipole-dipole attractions are important;
there are no H atoms in the molecule, and homonuclear molecules are
nonpolar. London forces are more important than in HCl since Br2 is heavier.
c) In ICl there are no hydrogen bonds since there are no H atoms in the
molecule. The London forces are as strong as in Br2 since the two molecules
have the same number of electrons. However, dipole-dipole interactions are
important in ICl; the molecule is polar toward Cl.
d) In HF London forces are not very important; the molecule has only 10
electrons. Hydrogen bonding is quite important and definitely overshadows
even the strong dipole-dipole interactions.
e) In CH4, H bonds are not important; the H atoms are not bonded to F, O, or
N. In addition the molecule is not polar, so there are no dipole-dipole
interactions. Finally, London forces are quite weak since the molecule
contains only 10 electrons, and this is why CH4 is a gas with low critical

n = (1.00 atmx1.17 L)/(0.08206 L atm mol K x354.75 K) = 0.0402 mol

Therefore, ÄHvap = (1.00 kJ / 0.0402 mol) = 24.9 kJ/mol acetonitrile

12-36 The final pressure of the gas mixture remains constant at 742 mmHg even
though the gas mixture is now saturated with CCl so the partial pressure of N
must decrease.
