WHY COVALENT COMPOUNDS ARE GENERALLY LIQUID OR GASEOUS IN STATE?
Asked by ISHAAN ARORA | 6th Dec, 2010, 12:00: AM
This is because covalent compounds have covalent bonding in them which is formed by sharing of electrons between atoms. The intermolecular bonding is weak. Thus, the molecules are loosely held by each other. Hence , covalent compounds are generally liquid or gaseous in state.
