not sure about the others though.

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

Marcie has the correct answer for 1 and 3.
physical science - marcie, Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6:31pm
im pretty sure 2 is d.

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 - marcie, 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 - Amy, Monday, November 17, 2008 at 6:45pm
thx any ways and good luck on your test;)

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?

1 is b

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

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

what is the factors of quantity and quality of water?

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
hope this helps :)
