Q- Classify the following solids in different categories based on the nature of intermolecular forces operating in them:
Potassium Sulphate, Tin, Benzene, Urea, Ammonia, Water, Zinc Sulphide, Graphite, Rubidium, Argon, Silicon Carbide.
Answer- All the given solids are categories below based on the nature of intermolecular forces–
|Potassium Sulphate||Ionic solid|
|Benzene||Non-Polar (Molecular) solid|
|Urea||Polar Molecular solid|
|Ammonia||Hydrogen bonded molecular solid|
|Water||Hydrogen bonded molecular solid|
|Zinc Sulphide||Ionic solid|
|Graphite||Covalent solid (Network solid)|
|Argon||Non-Polar (Molecular) solid|
|Silicon Carbide||Covalent solid (Network solid)|

How many types of solids are there on the basis of nature of intermolecular forces operating in them?
On the basis of the nature of intermolecular forces, solids are of four main types. These four types are- Metallic solids, Ionic solids, Covalent solids, and Molecular solids.
What type of solid is rubidium?
Rubidium is a type of Metallic solid. The particles of rubidium substance are rubidium particles (rubidium atoms). So, this solid is made up of rubidium metal particles.
