Please help I will medal and fan! Which of the following is not a characteristic of a covalent compound? It can be a solid, liquid or gas. It has a low melting point. It is made of two nonmetals. It is formed when metal atoms lose electrons to nonmetal atoms.

    You can actually learn quite a lot about the covelant compounds if you look up "The wave theory"

    Well, do you know what happens when a bond creates between a metal and a nonmetal?

    Magnesium is a metal, and Fluorine is a non-metal.

    It's actually MgF2, instead of MgF though, MgF does not exist :)

    well the question asks about salt, in general I guess.

    I would say yes. Salts are usually made up of ions, not molecules.

    They are mostly made up of Cations and Anions, which is positively charges Ions and negative charged.
