NaCl Crystal

  1. Jan 31, 2005 #1
    How would someone go about creating a large NaCl crystal? Is there a special evaporation technique involved with a saturated solution?

    As a side question why is sugar in crystal form? I mean isn't sugar a covalently bonded molecule?

    I do not know anything about your first question but I could ask you this, why are diamonds or any carbon molecules in crystal form since they too are composed of molecular Bonds...
