A common prank on college campuses is to switch the salt and sugar on dining hall tables. which is usually easy because the substances look so much alike. Yet, despite the similarity in their appearance, these two substances differ greatly in their properties because one is a molecular solid and the other is an ionic solid. How do the properties differ and why?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

How sugar and salt differ in properties and why must be explained?

Concept Introduction:

Sugar is molecular solid, and salt is ionic solid.

Ionic solid has electrostatic attraction whereas molecular solids are generally covalent.

Ionic solids have ions which includes cations and anions.

Molecular solids have molecules.

Explanation

Two solids may be looking similar externally. But in molecular level those are different. Thus their physical and chemical properties will be different. Like sugar and salt both looks similar but aqueous solution of these two have different properties...
