Growing Up Crystals

Adapted From Multiple Sources. Compiled Natalie Ulrich, (PhD)

Many covalent and ionic compounds are solids at room temperature. Solids may exist as crystalline solids—that is, ordered arrays of atoms, ions, or molecules—or as amorphous solids, which have random or disordered arrangements of particles. There are several types of crystalline solids. In this lab, you’ll be creating a crystalline ionic solid. In ionic solids, ions, either monatomic or polyatomic ions are held together by ionic bonds.

An instructor guide and a student handout are attached.
