Consider Figure 14.10. Imagine you are talking to a friend who has not taken any science courses, and explain how the figure demonstrates the concept of vapor pressure and enables it to be measured.
Chapter 9 February 1 Molten salts and aqueous solutions of salts are electrically conducting, resulting from the motion of ions in the liquids. Suggests the possibility that ions exist in certain solids. Describing Ionic Bonds Define ionic bond. Explain the Lewis electrondot symbol of an atom. Describe the energetics of ionic bonding. Define lattice energy. Describe the Born–Haber cycle to obtain a lattice energy from thermodynamic data. Describe some general properties of ionic substances. Electron Configurations of Ions State the three categories of monatomic ions of maingroup elements. Write the electron configuration and Lewis symbol for a maingroup ion. Note the polyatomic ions given earlier in Table 2.5. Note the formation of +2 and +3 transitionmetal ion
