Problem 52P

Classify each compound as ionic or molecular. If it is ionic, determine whether the metal forms only one type of ion or more than one type of ion.

(a) CoCl2

(b) CF4

(c) BaSO4

(d) NO

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 52P

Here, we are going to discuss about the ionic or molecular compound.

Step 1: 

Ionic bonding is possible in a compound, when the valence electrons are transferred among the atoms of the compound. It generates positively and negatively charged ions.

Thus, ionic compound are composed of metals and nonmetals by ionic bond.

For example: NaCl is an ionic compound, where

Step 2: 

Covalent or molecular bonding is possible only when the valence electrons are shared among the atoms in a molecule.

Thus, molecular compounds are consist of two or more covalently bonded

nonmetals.

For example: Formation of Hydrogen molecule.

H. + .H ----> H-H
