Explain how the organization of particles in a solid is different for an anhydrous ionic compound versus a hydrate.
Solids can be viewed as a state of matter where constituent particles are highly ordered with negligible intermolecular distance. Solids can be found in different forms. Anhydrous ionic compounds and hydrates are two such types.
Answer and Explanation: 1
Ionic compounds are a class of compounds formed by the actual transfer of electrons from an electropositive metal to an electronegative metal. An...
