I: All ionic compounds are giant, meaning millions of oppositely charged ions that...
attract which creates strong electrostatic forces in all directions

Conducting Electricity - SM: Can't when solid as no free electrons but...
yes when dissolved and molten because the ions are free to move and carry charge
