Crystalline solids represent structures with well-organized patterns and shapes. Amorphous solids represent structures that lack an organized pattern or shape. 

Crystalline vs Amorphous Solids

Concept #1: Crystalline vs Amorphous Solids

Example #1: Identify the ionic solid from the following options.

Practice: What is the major electrostatic force found within an ammonia molecule, NH3?

Practice: As it cools off, olive oil slowly hardens and forms a solid over a range of temperatures. Which best describes it as a solid? 

Practice: Compound A is hard, doesn’t conduct electricity, and melts at 1400ºC. Compound A represents which of the following:

Practice: Classify each solid as amorphous, molecular, network covalent, alloy or ionic. 

a) Steel                                               ______________________

b) CO2                                                ______________________

c) Graphite                                         ______________________

d) CaCO3                                            ______________________
