Suggest, giving reasons, which substance in each of the following pairs is likely to have the higher normal melting point
(Lewis structures may help your arguments): (a) HCl or NaCl

Why is the melting point of NaCl higher that HCL?

Since ionic bonds form strong electrostatic interactions with ions they have higher melting points than covalent compounds.

This is because nacl is a crystal lattice structure instead of a simple ionic compound, which requires more energy to break.
