AQA Triple Unit Bonding
Which type of bonding is present in water?
Which type of bonding is present in calcium carbonate?
Why are ionic sunstances high melting point solids?
there are strong forces of attraction between the oppositely charged ions
Why do covalent substances have low melting and boiling points?
There are weak forces of attraction between molecules
Why can graphite conduct electricity?
There are delocalised electrons
Why is diamond hard?
There are strong covalent bonds between the atoms
Why are metals malleable?
The layers of metal ions can slide over each other
Why is an alloy?
a mixture of metals
Why are alloys harder than pure metals?
the layers of metal ions are distorted and cannot easily slide over each other
