Lesson Worksheet: Ionic Structures Chemistry
In this worksheet, we will practice describing common features of ionic lattices and linking their material properties to their chemical structures.
The formation of an ionic lattice from a metal and a nonmetal can be divided into four stages:
- Conversion of elements to gaseous atoms
- Removal of electrons from metal atoms
- Addition of electrons to nonmetal atoms
- Formation of a lattice from gaseous ions
Which two stages are typically exothermic?
- A1 and 3
- B2 and 4
- C1 and 2
- D2 and 3
- E3 and 4
