Structure and Bonding- Giant Covalent

HideShow resource information
Give an example of a giant covalent structure?
Carbon or Silicon Dioxide
1 of 5
What is the melting point of this giant covalent structure?
(Either) Very High melting point because it has strong covalent bonds holding them together meaning it can't be broken as easily
2 of 5
Does this giant covalent structure conduct electricity?
(Either) This scructure does not conduct electricity as a solid can't contain mobile particles
3 of 5
How hard is this giant covalent structure?
(Carbon) Soft as it contains only carbon atoms (Silicon Dioxide) Fairly Hard as strong covalent bonds join the silicon and oxygen
4 of 5
How is this giant covalent structure formed?
(Either) A shared pair of electrons between two non metals.
