Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, September 15, 2010 at 8:29pm.

Explain why the melting points of ionic compounds and molecular compounds differ?

The melting points of ionic compounds and molecular compounds differ because....

-A tremendous amount of energy (heat transfer) is required to separate the tightly bound ions in solid ionic compounds (better known as melting).

-Since the attractive forces between covalent molecules are relatively weak, they are easy to separate.

I have the answers here, but I would like some help putting this all together, because I donít get how to start answering from because.

Thanks in advance.
