Other questions in this quiz

2. why do solid ionic compounds form crystals?

  • idk
  • ionic bonds create one giant ionic lattice which is a single crystal of salt
  • the forces of attraction between the ions are very strong

3. why can ionic compounds conduct electricity when dissolved in water but not when they're solid?

  • when dissolved ions can separate and can move freely meaning they are able to carry an electric current
  • dunno
  • there are gaps for the current to flow through

4. explain why most molecular substances are gases

  • they have a strong bond
  • they have low melting and boiling points, so normally gases at room temp
  • they are produced in the atmosphere
  • they feel like it

5. do solid ionic compounds have low or high boiling points?explain why

  • idk
  • high because it takes a lot of energy to overcome the strong forces of attraction between ions
  • low because its easy to break the bonds
