Answer to Question #202300 in Inorganic Chemistry for someone

Question #202300

If a crystal lattice structure is so hard, what causes most ionic compounds to be brittle?


  • Applying force, such as striking the crystal with a hammer, can shift one layer of ions, causing ions of different charges to align, repel each other, and fragment the crystal.
  • Applying force, such as striking the crystal with a hammer, can release protons, causing ions of similar charges to align, repel each other, and dissolve the crystal.
  • Applying force, such as striking the crystal with a hammer, can release electrons, causing ions to alter their charges, repel each other, and dissolve the crystal.
  • Applying force, such as striking the crystal with a hammer, can shift ions, causing ions of similar charges to align, repel each other, and fragment the crystal.


(which of the answer is correct)


  • it is not: Applying force, such as striking the crystal with a hammer, can release electrons, causing ions to alter their charges, repel each other, and dissolve the crystal.
