What is the definition of "ionic bonding"?
The electrostatic attraction between 2 oppositely charged (metal and non-metal) ions
1 of 8
What does ionic bonding result in, in terms of electrons?
Electrons are transferred to make each ion have a full outer shell, either by loss or by gain of electrons
2 of 8
What is the term for the structure of sodium chloride and sodium oxide?
Giant ionic lattices
3 of 8
What are giant ionic lattices?
Regularly structured repeated units
4 of 8
When do ionic compounds conduct electricity?
When molten or dissolved
5 of 8
In what kind of solvents to they dissolve?
Polar solvents
6 of 8
What is meant by "crystalline"? Are ionic compounds crystalline?
Arraged regularly, hence ionic compounds are crystalline
7 of 8
Why do ionic lattices have high melting and boiling points?
The ionic bonds are very strong, so it takes a large amount of energy to break them
