IONIC AND METALLIC BONDING Name Make the following statements correct by crossing out the incorrect underlined word(s) . 1. Anions are smaller / larger than their corresponding atoms. 2. In the formation of an ionic compound the net energy change is endothermic/exothermic. 3. When bonds are formed energy is required / released. 4. Salts are composed of 2 nonmetallic elements / a positive and a negative ion. 5. Hydroxides are salts / ionic compounds. 6. The number / arrangement of ions in a crystal determines its shape. 7. MgSO4 is a molecule / formula unit. 8. Large attractive forces between particles in substances result in low/high melting points. 9. Ionic bonding involves a transfer / sharing of electrons. 10. The bonds in an ionic compound are strong / weak. 11. Solid / molten salt will conduct electricity. 12. NaOH / NaNO3 is a salt. 13. Ionic compounds are solids / liquids at room temperature. 14. The energy given off when ions bond to form a solid salt is ionization / lattice energy. 15. Compounds form to achieve the lowest / highest possible energy. 16. Li3PO4 / Ba(OH) 2 is a hydroxide. 17. Metals and metal alloys are poor / good conductors of electricity. 18. Metallic bonds form between atoms with high / low ionization energies. 19. Metallic crystals are most often cubic / rhombic in shape. 20. Metallic bonds are the result of the attraction of nonmetallic anions / metallic cations for free-floating electrons.
