problem. 21 list several compounds that are found in fertilizers and asks which compounds contain CO Vaillant and Ionic bonds. So at first glance, um, uh, it’s sort of simple to pick out which is, uh, which is switch here from these simpler molecules remembering at Ionic bonds are typically between a metal and a non metal and CO Vaillant bonds, usually between two non metals. So, um, the sort of simpler molecules here, like potassium chloride, is a metal nonmetal pair, um potassium, uh, or die Potassium oxide here is metal nonmetal. And then, uh, die Phosphorus Penta oxide here is CO Vaillant because both phosphorus and oxygen are not medals, so that leaves us with ammonium sulfate and calcium phosphate. Um, so because calcium is…
