contrast ionic and molecular substances in terms of the types of attractive forces that govern their behavior

  • chemistry -

    Ionic substances are made up of ionic molecules whereas molecular substances are made up of molecules.The ionic bond is due to oppositely charged ions participating in bond formation. It is mainly electrostatic force. In molecular substances it is due vander vaal's force of attraction. This makes the ionic bond stronger than the molecular bond.
