Ionic or covalent- check this please

  1. Nov 10, 2005 #1
    Classify each of the following as ionic or covalent. I did all but I am not really sure about this one. NH4NO3 I put covalent. Is this correct? Thanks

    Well no because NH4NO3 is comprised of a NH4+ ion and a NO3- ion. The bonds in the ions themselves, however, are covalent, but the answer you are looking for is ionic.
