Question

The properties of several unknown solids were measured.

Solution: The properties of several unknown solids were measured....

Solid A is Covalent because it does not conduct electricity but has very high melting point. Covalent or covalent-network solids are very hard with high melting points and possess covalent bonds as intermolecular forces.

Solid B is Ionic because ionic solids conduct electricity only when in aqueous states (when dissolved in a solution).
