I'm really confused over how to weigh the molecular mass with intermolecular forces such as hydrogen bonding in HF in terms of figuring out the melting points in relation to each other.
I know that HF has the highest melting point out of HCl and HI, but then HCl and HI both have significantly larger molecular mass.
So how does one properly explain why HF has the higher melting point out of HCl and HI? (Not just saying that generally hydrogen bonds out weigh the molecular mass when considering boiling point)
Is there any mathematical basis?
