    Question About Naming Molecular Compounds

    Okay so I have started this debate with my Chemistry Teacher about how you determine if a compound is Ionic or Covalent. I was basing on how I name a compound based on the Electronegativity. Based on the χ<0.4⇒ covalent non-polar 0.4<χ<1.7⇒ covalent polar χ>1.7⇒ ionic So for example on PbI2...

    Inquiry lab inorganic compounds

    Hello, I am having a problem with the following: I need to find a way to identify 3 given solid compounds as either salt, hydroxide or acid. I would start with measuring pH after dissolving in water. Low pH would mean it s no hydroxide, but it can still be an acid or a salt. Then I would...

    Why aren't Ionic Compounds Molecules?

    Okay I understand why ionic compounds are ionic compounds and that is the ionic bonding. What I don't understand is why this isn't a subset of the molecules. They have these properties that some molecules share: Negative and Positive parts High Solubility in water Forms a lattice in the...

    boiling point of organic compounds

    Which one of these have the lowest boiling point? How can you tell which one has the lowest BP? all are isomers of C3h9n Propamine -------> CH3-CH2-CH2-NH2 : Prop-2-amine --------> CH3-CH-NH2-CH3 EthyMethylamine -------> CH3-NH-CH2-CH3 TriMethylamine -------> N(CH3)3 Is it propamine...

    Why do these two compounds have different Boiling Points (BP's)?

    2-Methylpentane and 2-Pentanone have similar Molar Mass' but different BP's. In terms of the Intermolecular forces and surface area of the molecules explain why. I had since 2-Methylpentane is an Alkane consisting of only Carbon and Hydrogen it is non-polar (due to the distribution of electrons...

    Need help determining compounds and if an equilibrium reaction?

    I've tried contacting my teacher but unfortunately this is an online course and he is not responding. What are the compounds and intermediates of 1 through 4 in the equation in this link? And Why is this NOT an equilibrium reaction? Assuming that I add exactly 5ml of (1) (d=1.05g ml), how many...

    Predicting lattice energies of ionic compounds with oxyanions...?

    So I know that lattice energy is closely related to electric potential... the lattice energy of an ionic compound is proportional to the product of the charges on its irons and inversely proportional to the bond length. Now what if the anion from the ionic compound is a polyatomic oxyanion...
