Your question is
very good, it was presented properly.
I like the simulation it is very useful, and it helped me to answer the
I think that you
wrote a great question which is understanding and analysis question, which is
suitable for the middle school syllabus.
You should add
information at the beginning of the question which will be useful, you can
describe the structure of ionic substance.
Your point on map is very interesting and related to the topic.
More information about Ionic conductivity:
Ionic conduction is the
movement of an ion from one site to another through defects in the crystal
lattice of a solid or aqueous solution.
Ionic conduction is one mechanism of current. In solids, ions
typically occupy fixed positions in the crystal lattice and do not move.
However, ionic conduction can occur, especially as the temperature increases.
Ionic conduction is one of the mechanisms by which microwave ovens
are believed to work. Microwaves cause ions dissolved in the microwaved sample
to oscillate, colliding with neighboring molecules or atoms. These collisions
cause agitation, motion or heat. This mechanism is important when considering
the heating behavior of ionic liquids within a microwave.
Ionic conduction in solids has been a subject of interest since the
beginning of the 19th century. Michael Faraday established in 1839 that the
laws of electrolysis are also obeyed in ionic solids like lead(II) fluoride
(PbF2) and silver sulfide (Ag2S).
I really appreciate your efforts to write these useful comments; it helped me to improve my question. I put the simulationinside the question itself and not at the answers according to your suggestion, Marlene, so it would not imply that this is the correct answer.I also added a video to the point on the map
I added a table which contains information about electrolytes and nonelectrolytes substances at the beginning of the question according to your suggestion, Farida.On purpose I didn't add a description to the structure of
ionic substance to encourage the students to visit the simulation and learn about the difference between ionic and molecular
Good luck for you too.
