What are the "such and such" questions?

"At the molecular level" means exactly that: you are being asked to describe or model something in terms of molecular interactions rather than adopting macroscopic, phenomenological models.

example of "such and such" question:How can you explain on the molecular level the conclusion you reached in part B

(fyi: part B stated, "What general correlations can be drawn about the electronegativity difference between bonded atoms and their tendency to form ionic or covalent bonds." I had previously calcuated electronegativity difference between chlorine and sodium, and between chlorine and silicon).

Thanks for your help:)

What happens at the molecular level. ie. what is going on with the electrons of the atoms and the atoms themselves?
