Why coordinate covalent compound are bad conductor of heat and eletricity?
because there is free electrons(ions) to conduct heat and electricity.
Because a compound is formed by bonding of two or more atoms of "different" elements. These atoms may joined by covalent bonding, and the resulting compound is known as covalent compound( like HCl, CO2, H2O...etc.) Similarly ionic bonding results in the formation of ionic compound (like NaCl, KCl) and coordinate bonding results in the formation of coordinate compounds (like LiAlH4) Whereas the Oxygen is concerned it exists in O2 which is a molecule and not…
In ordinary covalent bond, each reacting atom has to donate electrons. On the other hand, the pair of electrons in coordinate covalent bond is donated only by one of the reacting atoms. Once formed the coordinate covalent bond is for all intents and purposes a covalent bond, in the simple example of NH4+ where one bond is formally called a coordinate covalent bond (or dative bond) all the bonds are identical, the ion is tetrahedral.
