why are ionic compounds brittle. it is mentioned that they are strongly attached to each other and are hard solids yet it is also written in our book that they are brittle in nature. Can i have a solution to my confusion?

The ionic compounds are very hard and brittle. In ionic compounds  the ions are rigidly held in a lattice because the positive and negative ions are strongly attracted to each other and difficult to separa...
