Impurities will usually lower the melting point of an organic compound. Impurities also increase the range of melting points in the compound. This means the temperature ne…eded for melting isn't consistent.
The melting points of organic compounds will vary and are related to the boiling points. Organic compounds that have strong cohesive forces will generally have higher melt…ing points.
When there are impurities in an organic compound, this affects the melting point in that it is lowered. Impurities also broaden the range of the melting point.
In general, inorganic compounds have higher melting point than that of organic compounds.
my hair is on fire
Melting point is important in organic chemistry because it can be used for the identification of a compound. For pure solid organic compounds will have a small melting point …range (0.5-10C),thus presence of impurity can also be find out by Melting point.
Organic compounds generally are long hydrocarbon chains which are only attracted to each other by Van der Waals bonds which are the weakest intermolecular bonds. Since the bon…ds between molecules are weaker, they tend to melt much more quickly then stronger intermolecular bonded molecules.
If a substance is a compound, you know exactly what is in it. Scientists say that compounds have a fixed composition. that means that they are always made up from the same ato…ms, present in the same ratio.
To check the purity of the organic compound.
They usually are long "chains" of hydrocarbon that only attracted to the weakest intermolecular bonds. Bonds between molecules are generally weaker so they tend to melt faste…r when compare to the melting point of stronger intermolecular bonded molecules.
This question is much too broad to get a correct answer. There are thousands of organic compounds, and a large number of those could have a melting point of 122.3-123.
By heating them to their melting point and noting the temperature at which it occurs. Using a melting point apparatus of course.
This statement is generally true because organic compounds are molecular and the intermilecular forces are weak and therefore are readily pulled apart. This contarasts with th…e stronger bonds present in giant molecules such as SiO2 (covalent), in ionic compounds (electrostatic forces) and in metals where there are metallic bonds.
two different pure organic compounds may have same melting points because may be they share their nature of chemical bonds.
