Why do ionic compounds have high melting points

Give a reason for Ionic compounds have a high melting point.

Ionic compounds have strong electrostatic forces of attraction between the ions. Therefore, it requires a lot of energy to overcome these forces. That is why ionic compounds have high melting points

Solution 2

Ionic compounds have alternatively arranged cations and anions to give closely packed structure and balanced forces. A lot of energy is needed to break strong ionic bonds, therefore, ionic compounds are high melting.
