Use a diagram explain how LiF dissolves in water.
Ionic compounds make crystal lattice structure where anions surrounded themselves with cations, and cations with anions. The molecular formula (such as LiF) is therefore only a formula unit representing the ratio of constituent ions to each other.
Answer and Explanation: 1
A soluble ionic lattice like lithium fluoride will be solvated by water molecules. Water molecules are polar (oxygen side is partially negative and...
