Solution: Of the elements below, __________ has the highest melting point.A) CaB) KC) FeD) NaE) Ba

Problem

Of the elements below, __________ has the highest melting point.

A) Ca

B) K

C) Fe

D) Na

E) Ba

Solution
  • Melting point relates the amount energy required to break a bond between solid substances into liquid
  • Generally, the stronger the bond, the higher the energy needed to break the bond
  • In periodic trends, melting points of elements vary and do not follow any distinguishable trend across the periodic table.
