Classify each compound as ionic or molecular.
Here, we have to classify the given compounds as ionic or molecular :
First let’s see what is an ionic and molecular compound :
An ionic compound is a substance formed from the chemical binding of elements with opposite charges. The force of attraction between opposite charges keeps the molecule together. Simply put, Ionic compounds are generally combinations of metals and nonmetals where cations are metal ions and anions are nonmetal ions.
Example : Common table salt or Sodium chloride(NaCl), Silver iodide(AgI) .
A molecular compound can be defined as a compound where the atoms share electrons through covalent bonds. It is also known as a covalent compound. Molecular compounds are combination of nonmetals.
Example :Water, its molecular formula is : H2OAmmonia is expressed in molecular formula as : NH3
