Problem 13E

How does the ionic bonding model explain the relatively high melting points of ionic compounds?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 13E Step 1 of 1 Ionic compounds tend to arrange their ions by forming ordered structures called lattices. In these structures the ions are held together by coulombic forces regulating their attraction or repulsion; obviously the attractive forces are major respect to the repulsive ones. If we melt a crystal we have to use Energy in form of heat in order to destroy the lattice, thus the attractive interactions. Obviously, the more ordered will be the structure (as it happens in pure crystals) the higher will be the energy we have to spend to melt the crystal
