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.

Q1:

The formation of an ionic lattice from a metal and a nonmetal can be divided into four stages:

  1. Conversion of elements to gaseous atoms
  2. Removal of electrons from metal atoms
  3. Addition of electrons to nonmetal atoms
  4. 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
