A scientist isolates a gaseous compound. Is the compound ionic or covalent? Why?
Probably covalent. Most gaseous compounds are diatomic molecules (O2, H2, F2, Cl2 etc) or compounds between elements on the same side of the periodic table (SO2, CO2, SO3, etc) or the middle and side of the periodic table (CH4, C2H2, etc).
