Unformatted text preview: melting point than the CsF because it is the more stable ionic compound. 42) You could do spectrography or x-ray diffraction. 43) a) It has layers of un-bonded carbon atoms within the structure which makes it more brittle. b) The arrangement of the atoms in diamond is structurally very strong. Each carbon bond has a double bond which makes it a strong bond. Since diamond has very strong bonds with the crystal lattice structure it requires more energy (heat) to make it melt. c) In layers of carbon that contain the un-bonded electrons, the free electrons are free to move throughout the layer which makes it a good conductor. 44) a) F and G d) D and E b) A and B e) F and G c) E 45) Experiment #2 is on the next pages....
