This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, is suitable for students who have studied bonding and structure and can calculate relative molecular mass. Students are provided with information on some elements which they use to calculate the formula mass of other elements. They are then provided with a table of eight elements, showing the relationship between their formula mass and melting points. Students are asked to identify and explain the pattern and use this to predict the melting point for carbon which they compare to data book values. They are given four diagrams showing the particles in neon, chlorine, sulfur and carbon which they are asked to use to explain why carbon has a high melting point.
