The formulas for ethanol and ammonium nitrate are C2H5OH and NH4NO3. In what respects are these formulas and compounds different?

Am I supposed to say that there are different elements that make up the compounds?

    Here are some. Perhaps best as a table?

    C2H5OH covalent liquid, low melting point and low boiling point. Miscible with water in all proportions. Forms a constant boiling mixture with water.


    NH4NO3 ionic solid. High melting and boiling point. Soluble in water.
