    • This Property is allotropy.The physical properties are different because the carbon- carbon bonding in both the cases varies.In diamond one carbon atom is bonded with four other carbon atoms with strong covalent bond so it is hard, while in case of graphite each carbons forms two strong bonds with other carbon and one weak bond is formed with third carbon atom and forms hexagoanl rings which slide over,so it is soft.
