Lab #3: Discovering Properties of Compounds - Ionic or Molecular?April 27, 2017Nathan GreenwoodPartner: Sean PalmerMs. Cinanni TeacherSNC-2DIntroduction:An ionic compound is a compound that is made up of a metal element and a
nonmetal element. Properties of ionic compounds include very high melting/ boiling points and conductive when mixed with a liquid. Examples of ionic compounds include Sodium sulfate, Potassium chloride, salt, bromide, and sulfide. A molecular compound is a compound that is made up of two non-metal elements. Properties of molecular compounds include low melting/boiling points, poor conductivity, and are usually soft. Examples of molecular compounds include sugar, Lauric acid, water, and ammonium. Purpose:To determine whether chemicals are ionic or molecular compounds based on their physical properties. Hypothesis:If the compound has a metal in it than it will be a ionic compound and if it does not
