In this worksheet, we will practice linking the physical properties of materials to the relative strengths of intra- and intermolecular bonds.
Which of the following structural characteristics allows graphite to be used as a lubricant?
- ACarbon atoms are linked by strong partial double 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.
