Learning Goal: I’m working on a geology report and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
1. -List 12 elements (including Si and O) most commonly found in silicate minerals and
compare their ionic radii at different charges (if any).
Discuss the relationship between the different ionic radii observed, and
substitutions known to occur within the silicate structures of minerals.
2. Use appropriate sketches (or illustrations) to compare the different silicate groups,
from the simplest to the most complex (single tetrahedron to framework and sheet) and
discuss the different physical and chemical properties that may arise from these changes,
including substitutions in the original silicon tetrahedral structure.
Note: Report should be type written, no longer than 6 pages, 1 W/2 line spacing (12 font)
You may use your Mineralogy and other available geology materials to complete the
assignment. List references used.
NOTE: This assignment is personal
