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

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

2. what is covalent bonding

  • atoms vibrating together
  • idk
  • sharing electrons due to electrostatic attraction between the positive nuclei and the negative electrons
  • giving up or gaining an electron

3. what makes sea water salty?

  • contains many ionic compounds called salts
  • someone was eating slat and vinegar crips in the sea
  • idk

4. why do solid ionic compounds form crystals?

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

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
