A. Brittle, low melting point, strong electrical conductor
B. Malleable, high melting point, shiny
C. Weak electrical conductor, high melting point, hard
D. Strong electrical conductor, shiny, ductile
E. Low melting point, dull, ductile
Determine the composition of NaCl, categorize it and distinguish its characteristics
NaCl is composed of Na (Group 1A metal) and Cl (Group 7A non-metal) which makes it an ionic compound (metal + nonmetal)
