Worksheet: Physical Effects of Bonding Type

In this worksheet, we will practice linking the physical properties of materials to the relative strengths of intra- and intermolecular bonds.

  • BCarbon atoms are sp2 hybridized.
  • CElectrons are delocalised over an expanded covalent network.
  • DPlanes of atoms interact weakly.
  • EPlanes of atoms have no net charge.
