Problem: What kinds of attractive forces exist between particles (atoms, molecules, or ions) in (a) molecular crystals, (b) covalent-network crystals, (c) ionic crystals, (d) and metallic crystals?

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the types of solids are:

• Ionic solid: composed of a metal and a nonmetal as ions.

• Molecular solid: composed of covalent bonds.

• Metallic solid: composed of metal and another metal or just a metal by itself.

• Covalent solid: also called a network solid where atoms are bonded by covalent bonds in a single continuous network.
