Polarity is a physical property of compounds which relate to other physical properties, such as melting and boiling points or solubility. Bond polarities arise from bonds between atoms of different electronegativity. A m... More »

A compound in chemistry is a combination of atoms from at least two different elements. Compounds do not contain mixtures of elements. They form through a chemical binding process and are in stable ratios. More »

CO is the molecular formula for carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas, and continuous exposure to high concentrations of carbon monoxide can be fatal to both humans and animals. More »

The law of octaves in chemistry is a generalization of a correspondence between chemical properties and atomic weight, in which different elements with similar chemical properties are usually separated by some multiple o... More »

Ionic compounds have high melting and boiling points because the ionic bonds that hold the compounds together are very strong and require a great deal of energy to break apart. A higher temperature indicates that more en... More »
