Select the best answer choice to answer the question.

Coulomb's Law expresses that the force of interaction between 2 charged bodies is:

a) directly proportional to the sum of the charges on the bodies and directly proportional to the distance separating the ions


b) directly proportional to the product of the charges on the bodies and inversely proportional to the distance separating the ions

c) inversely proportional to the product of the charges on the bodies an inversely proportional to the distance separating the ions

d) inversely proportional to the sum of the charges on the bodies and directly proportional to the distance separating the ions

What is the structure of an ionic bond?

a) molecules held together by intermolecular forces (IMF)

b) a sea of freely moving electrons with metal ions at lattice points

c) rigid lattice with alternating positive and negative ions

d) network of atoms covalently bonded to each other
