Takes NaCl as a typical example to show the relationship between the physical properties of an ionic compound and its structure. Also compares the structures of NaCl and CsCl.
Giant covalent structures
Looks at diamond, graphite and silicon dioxide and the way their physical properties are affected by their structures.
Looks at the relationship between the physical properties of metals and their structures.
Looks in detail at the structures of ice, iodine and poly(ethene) as well as dealing in general with the sort of physical properties you might expect of molecular substances.
How to decide
Explains how you can decide which sort of structure a substance has by looking at its physical properties.
