Solution: Based on the following molecular views, classify each substance as an atomic element, a molecular element, an ionic compound, or a molecular compound.(c)

Problem

Based on the following molecular views, classify each substance as an atomic element, a molecular element, an ionic compound, or a molecular compound.Three molecular views: a, b, and c. View a is a collection of six pairs of white spheres, each pair comprised of two white spheres combined, with the pairs relatively far apart. View b is a collection of three molecules, each consisting of a central blue sphere surrounded by three smaller white spheres, each molecule is relatively far apart. View c is a collection of purple spheres packed closely together in an ordered, repeating arrangement.
