why ionic compounds are usually solids
Asked by | 24th Jun, 2008, 11:19: AM
Ionic compounds are usually solids because there exists strong force of attraction between the molecules of the ionic compounds.
Covalent compounds contain weak Vander Waals forces of attraction so covalent compounds can be amorphous solids,liquids or gases.
