12.5: Correlation between Bonding and the Properties of Solids

  • Page ID
  • The Learning Objective of this Mddule is to understand the correlation between bonding and the properties of solids.

    Based on the nature of the forces that hold the component atoms, molecules, or ions together, solids may be formally classified as ionic, molecular, covalent (network), or metallic. The variation in the relative strengths of these four types of interactions correlates nicely with their wide variation in properties.
