Question

Why do covalent compounds exist as gases, liquids or soft solids?

Solution

Covalent compounds have strong covalent bonds between the atoms in a molecule, but the intermolecular forces (Vander Waal's forces) are weak. Hence, covalent compounds are gaseous if molecules are less and liquid or soft solids if molecules are more.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
