Question

$$H_2S$$ is gas while $$H_2O$$ is liquid. Why?


Solution

  • In $$H_2O$$ there is hydrogen bonding because oxygen has a high electronegativity.
  •  
  • So, the hydrogen atoms from other molecules of water form a hydrogen bonds with oxygen resulting in intermolecular hydrogen bonding. 

  • Therefore at room temperature, $$H_2O$$ is a liquid and $$H_2S$$ is a gas.
