Mrs. Sorenson: Today, class we'll be learning about the different types of crystalline solids including ionic solids, molecular solids, covalent network solids, and metallic solids. We'll also touch on amorphous solids.
Louis: I won Alex!
Park: Quiet, Mrs. Sorensen. Louis and I are playing brawl stars!
AC: I'm still better at brawl stars than you, Park.
Mrs. Sorensen:Ionic solids are made up of ions, have high melting points, and don't conduct electricity when solid but do when molten. Meanwhile, molecular solids are held together by covalent bonds, have low boiling points, don't conduct electricity and typically have a distinctive color and/or odor.
Park: I think that AC is a molecular solid Mrs. Sorensen! He has a distinctive color and odor!
Louis: Hahahaha! *Incessantly laughing*
Wess: Seas, are made of water not electrons! Silly Mrs. Sorensen!
Mrs. Sorensen: Pay attention if you want to well on the final. That's better, now covalent network solids are rare and usually contain only carbon or silicon, have very high boiling points, don't conduct electricity, and are held together by covalent bonds. Metallic solids conduct electricity as solids and liquids, are held together by a sea of electrons, and have high melting points.
Park: High boiling point makes sense, I only lose my minecraft diamonds in lava.
Louis: How are metals held together by a sea of electrons? This sounds like a scam.
Wess: Well why don't we see the windows drip in the summer then?
Mrs. Sorenson: At last, amorphous solids are disorganized versus organized crystalline solids. Does anyone know why some people think that glass is a liquid?
Louis: It gets thicker at the bottom?
Park: I don't know, this goes against the laws of minecraft.
