Is there a scientific reason (i.e., not editorial, not because I’m a moron, etc.) different resources differ in the boiling points of elements?
I’m trying to edit a series of lesson plans for chemistry teachers. The author has made a table of elements that has melting and boiling points. In verifying the information, I find that Webelements lists the melting point of Carbon as 3527 °C, while Chemicalelements lists it at 4827.0 °C. This is not the only example of various Web pages listing things differently. What am I missing?
As a side/bonus question; she also has “Ratio with H 1:2” for Carbon (and other ratios for other elements). What the heck is that?
