1 of 6
What is the giant structures format?
It is regular as all of the ions are packed neatly together.
2 of 6
What is attracted in all directions?
Forces of attraction are in all directions.
3 of 6
How is an ion held in place?
Each ion in the lattice or giant structure is surronded by ions oppositly charged so is held firmly in place.
4 of 6
What does the ration depend on?
The charges of the atom (the small number next to the element)
