Ionic compounds are brittle due to the strong bond between the positive and negative ions that make up the molecules. These positive and negative bonds create crystals in rigid, lattice structures. Applying pressure shif... More »

Sodium chloride has a high melting point because of the strong electrostatic attraction between its positive and negative ions; this requires more heat energy to overcome. All ionic compounds have high melting points for... More »

Ionic compounds are formed by the electrostatic force of attraction between two oppositely charged ions, forming a neutral compound. Ions are formed when atoms either gain or lose electrons to obtain a stable electron co... More »
