5 List four ways in which the rate of a reaction may be increased.

1. Increase in temperature
2. Adding a catalyst
3. Increase the concentration of raw materials
4. Increase the surface area of raw materials
6 Define the structure of Sodium chloride in solid state.
Conventially NaCl has a crysttaline lattice structure with Cl ion surrounding the Na
positive ion.
On a larger scale NaCl comprises a 3-d structure, in which Na ions are conventially taken
at the corners of the cube.
This structure is very stable and a very high temperature is required to break it down (in
fact, 801 oC)

7 Identify the correct type of Bonding:

Choose from: covalent, metallic, ionic

Bonding Term
ionic charged atoms
metallic electron sea
covalent shared electrons

8 Give 3 differences between ionic and covalent compounds.

Ionic compound is formed between metals and non-metals whereas covalent compound is
formed with non-metals only
Ionic compound can dissolve in water and produces ions which con conduct electricity
Covalent compound has no ions so it cant conduct electricity
Ionic compound has a high melting point, existing as solid most of the time whereas
covalent compound has a low melting point, existing as liquids or gases.
