What are two properties of ionic compounds?
2)high melting points
3)high boiling points
There are more than two. In general: Covalent compounds have low melting and boiling points while ionic compounds have high melting and boiling points. Ionic compounds are good conductors of electricity when melted, while covalent compounds are not. Ionic compounds are soluble in water, while covalent compounds are soluble in non-polar liquids. These are the essentials, but other differences exist. All of these are generalizations, exceptions do occur.
four properties of ionic compound are: 1-All ionic compounds form crystals 2-Ionic compounds are very hard and very brittle 3-Ionic compounds conduct electricity when they dissolve in water 4-Ionic compounds tend to have high melting and boiling points and 3 ionic compounds are: Sodium Chloride - Na Cl Potassium Fluoride - KF Magnesium Chloride - MgCl2
