What is a compound?
Two or more DIFFERENT atoms bonded together
Define ionic bonding
oppositely charged Ions that are held together by electrostatic attraction in a lattice
Between a metal and a non-metal.
How are Ions formed?
When one or more electrons are transfered from one atom to another.
Write the sulfate ion
Write a hydroxide ion
Write a nitrate ion
Write a carbonate ion
Write an ammonium ion
What is the overall charge of any compound?
Can ionic compounds conduct electricity?
Only when molten as the ions are free to move around and carry a charge
Do they have a low or high melting point? Why?
High - because they have strong electrostatic forces so high amount of energy is needed to break them
Are they soluble?
They are in polar solvent as the charged particles pull the ions away from the lattice
