2. How are the sheets bonded together in graphite?

  • The atoms are attracted to the delocalised electron
  • By hydrophobic interactions
  • By van der Waals forces
  • By permanent dipole- dipole forces

3. Why is graphite less dense than diamond?

  • The sheets have a hexagonal shape.
  • There are many sheets.
  • The layers are far apart
  • The bonds formed are weaker.

4. Why carbon atoms can form this type of structure?
