Crystalline solids represent structures with well-organized patterns and shapes. Amorphous solids represent structures that lack an organized pattern or shape. 

Crystalline vs Amorphous Solids

Concept #1: Crystalline vs Amorphous Solids

Example #1: Identify the ionic solid from the following options.

Practice: What is the major electrostatic force found within an ammonia molecule, NH3

Practice: As it cools off, olive oil slowly hardens and forms a solid over a range of temperatures. Which best describes it as a solid?

Practice: Compound A is hard, doesn’t conduct electricity, and melts at 1400ºC. Compound A represents which of the following:

Practice: Classify each solid as amorphous, molecular, network covalent, alloy or ionic.

a) Steel                                                    ______________________
b) CO2                                                     ______________________
c) Graphite                                              ______________________
d) CaCO3                                                 ______________________
