Question: problem 8 216 the fraction ionic character of a bond...

Question details

Problem 8 2.16. The fraction ionic character of a bond between elements A and B can be approximated by Fraction ionic character-1-e-(X-Xb) / where XA and XB are the electronegativities of the respective elements. (a) Using this expression, compute the fractional ionic character for the following compounds: NaCI, Mgo, FeO, SiO2, and LiF. (b Explain what is meant by saying that the bonding in a solid is 50 percent ionic and 50 percent covalent.
