formed when an atom loses valence electrons to become positively charged
formed when an atom gains electrons and becomes negatively charged
Polar Covalent Bond
A bond in which the electrons are not shared equally.
The ability of an atom to attract electrons in a chemical bond.
Atoms bond in such a way as to have eight electrons in their valence shell.
Used to predict the shapes of molecules.
Electron Pair Geometry
Gives the arrangement of bonding and nonbonding pairs around a central atom.
Gives the arrangement of atoms in a molecule.
Found close to the nucleus.
Found in the most distant s and p energy subshells. Responsible for holding two or more atoms together in a chemical bond.
The energy required to break a covalent bond.
The distance between the two atoms.
