I was looking at a list of melting and boiling points of various compounds and I realised some had very large differences while some have very less differences between their melting and boiling points.
- for cyanogen, boiling point is -21.2°C while melting point: -27.9°C
- for propane, boiling point: -42 °C while the melting point: -144°C
Why does this happen?
