Answer

Double or triple bonds do not have a drastic impact on the physical properties (eg. melting point) of the hydrocarbons.

Work Step by Step

Double or triple bonds do not have a drastic impact on the physical properties (eg. melting point) of the hydrocarbons. Double or triple bonds are covalent bonds (within the molecule) properties (eg. melting point) are mostly due to intermolecular force (between molecules), thus these bonds do not have a drastic impact on the physical properties
