What kinds of forces hold atoms together? How does the nature of the bonding force affect the properties of a material? Finding patterns in the properties of substances can help students understand how and why atoms join together to form compounds. In this experiment, students examine the physical properties of five common solids and investigate the relationship between the type of bonding in a substance and its properties.
Includes reproducible student handouts, detailed background information, and Teacher Notes with sample data and answers to questions.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working in pairs. Perform this experiment in a fume hood or well-ventilated lab.
