The forces holding together a molecular solid are much (stronger/Weaker) than the forces between particles in an ionic solid.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The forces holding together a molecular solid should be compared with ionic solid.

Concept Introduction:

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

In ionic solids there are oppositely charged ions which are known as cations and anions. So there is electrostatic force of attraction between individual particles.

Due to ionic nature the force is relatively stronger which holds the constituents ions very tightly...
