IONIC BONDING: COMIC STRIP
Transcript of IONIC BONDING: COMIC STRIP
Anmol Randhawa 7th period
''But Mr. Martin, I was not here yesterday. I
think I remember some things about
ionic bonds from last year, but I may be
confusing it with covalent bonds. I'M
CONFUSED MR. MARTIN!''
"Okay, an ionic bond involves metals
and nonmetals, right? Also, its physical
state is solid and it has a low melting
point. How am I doing so far?
"Wow Martha! I must say I am very impressed. You
are doing fairly well for a student who missed an
entire lesson yesterday. All of it is right, except you
have one small error. Ionic bonds have HIGH melting
points, not low melting points. For example,
Compound 1: NaCl
Melting Point: 800° C
Compound 2: MgO
Melting Point: 2852° C
"Calm down Martha. Go ahead and tell me what you think you remember, don't worry I'll correct you if I need to. Start off with, what types of atoms are involved with ionic bonds.
"So children, tonight for homework you have to write a three page essay on ionic bonding, does that sound alright?"
"Thank you Mr. Martin, I'll be sure to keep that in mind while writing the essay. Oh yippie that reminds me, I remembered a few other things. Such as, Ionic Compounds
conduct electricity when
melted or when they are
dissolved in water.
" Wait Mr. Martin, I know more, most ionic compounds are brittle and hard. Lastly, they have a crystalline structure.
"Wow Martha, your teacher from last year has taught you fairly well. Just remember the few things that I corrected and I am positive you will get an A+ on your essay.
GOOD LUCK MARTHA REED! ''
