Solution: Identify each of the following solids as molecular, ionic, or atomicCaCl2(s), CS2(s), B(s), I2(s)

Solution: Identify each of the following solids as molecular, ionic, or atomicCaCl2(s), CS2(s), B(s), I2(s)

Problem

Identify each of the following solids as molecular, ionic, or atomic

CaCl2(s), CS2(s), B(s), I2(s)

Solution

Recall: The three basic types of solids are molecular, ionic, and atomic.
Molecular solid - is a solid composed of molecules or covalent compounds and held together by van der Waals forces, dipole-dipole interactions, hydrogen bonding
Ionic solid - composed of oppositely charged ions held together by ionic bonding
Atomic solid - made up of atoms of a single element
