Ionic solids do not conduct electricity in the solid state, but are strong conductors in the liquid state and when dissolved in water. Explain.
I. Stoichiometry of Chemical Reactions CONTINUED A. Patterns of Chemical Reactivity 1. Combination – two or more combine to form a product 2. Decomposition – a single reactant produces two or more products 3. Combustion – substance burns in the presence of oxygen and normally produces CO2 and H2O 4. Double Displacement (Metathesis or Exchange) – can be precipitation reaction or molecular product 5. Single Displacement – one solid metal exchanges to produce a different solid metal or hydrogen or halogen 6. Neutralization – acid/base to get salt and water 7. Condensation – two molecules combine and water is released B. Molecular Equations
