It is said that melting point Rises with decrease in size of the ions ;but we know that as the surface area increases ,the melting point should increase?

It is said that melting point Rises with decrease in size of the ions ;but we know that as the surface area increases ,the melting point should increase? Melting point and boiling point Ionic solids possess very hi melting point and boiling point due to strong attractive force between cations and anions. he melting point rises with increase in charge and decrease in size of ions. cvcca D

Dear student,


Surface area affect boiling point ,not the melting point.we decrease surface area, we are going to decrease intermolecular Van Der Walls interaction and thus decrease boiling point.Increase in interactive the surface area , increases the boiling point.
