An atomic solid is a solid where atoms of an element are bonded to other atoms of the same type.
There are four types of solids:
1. Molecular which are governed by intermolecular forces of attraction such as London dispersion forces, dipole-dipole, and hydrogen bonds. An example is the table sugar sucrose.
2. Network which is made up of strong covalent bonds in a continuous network. Example are diamond and graphite.
What type of atomic solid is Au(s)?
