    1. b
    3. b

    not sure about the others though.

  • physical science - , Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6:27pm

    I don't believe any of the original answers are correct.

    Marcie has the correct answer for 1 and 3.

  • physical science - , Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6:31pm

    im pretty sure 2 is d.

  • physical science - , Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6:35pm

    thx i am like having trouble with this chapter becuase are teacher asigned it and like we didn't really go over the chapter do you happen to know 4 and 5

  • physical science - , Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6:38pm

    no sorry...we are doing the same thing in science and we take the test over it tom...we never talked about those things from 4 and 5....i don't really get it either.

  • physical science - , Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6:45pm

    thx any ways and good luck on your test;)

  • physical science - , Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6:53pm

    thanks...hope you get your other answers

    Ionic compounds are formed when a metal loses an electron to a non-metal, which gains the electrons.
    Covalent compounds are formed, on the other hand, when electrons are shared between atoms.

    atoms gain or lose electrons to achieve what?

  • physical science - , Sunday, May 31, 2009 at 5:14pm

    1 is b

  • physical science - , Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 9:59pm

    My science book is exactly the same. this is what I put:

    1.b
    2.c
    3.b
    4.d
    5.?

    I'm not sure if I am right on some of those, and I'm still looking for the answer for number 5. Hope this helped!

  • physical science - , Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at 9:23pm

    i need number 5 too!!!! im doin the same stuff for hw now

    what is the factors of quantity and quality of water?

  • physical science - , Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 9:50pm

    when an atom loses an electron it becomes a positive ion

    A property of an ionic compound is crystal shape


    A bond in which a pair of electrons is shared between two atoms is a covalent bond

    Fluorine atoms cannot form a doubel or triple bond because fluorine has 7 valence electrons

    An ionic crystal splits along a face of like charges


    im pretty sure these are all right
    i had the same questions for homework but i didn't hand it in yet so i don't know if they're all correct

    1. B
    2. C
    3. B
    4. C
    5. A

    hope this helps :)
