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.


Which of the following structural characteristics allows graphite to be used as a lubricant?

  • APlanes of atoms have no net charge.
  • BElectrons are delocalized over an expanded covalent network.
  • CPlanes of atoms interact weakly.
  • DCarbon atoms are sp2 hybridized.
  • ECarbon atoms are linked by strong partial double bonds.
