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?

  • 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

4. explain why most molecular substances are gases

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

5. what is covalent bonding

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