Why do covalent compounds have low melting and boiling point?

Asked by Vandana Angelina Kerketta | 29th Oct, 2013, 08:50: PM

Expert Answer:

Covalent compounds have weak forces of attraction between the binding molecules.Thus less energy is required to break the force of bonding.Therefore covalent compounds have low melting and boiling point.
