Nonpolar Covalent Bonds
bonds in which electrons are shared equally between two atoms of the same element in a compound.
Lewis structures that have the same arrangement of atoms in a molecule but differ in the distribution of electrons among the atoms.
Van der Waals forces
a slight attraction that develops between the oppositely charged regions of nearby molecules
intermolecular forces resulting from the attraction of oppositely charged regions of polar molecules
attraction between positive charge on a hydrogen in a dipole and the negative end of another molecule. Think water!
a theory that predicts some molecular shapes based on the idea that pairs of valence electrons surrounding an atom repel each other
a phenomenon associated with surface tension and resulting in the elevation or depression of liquids in capillaries
compound that has water chemically attached to its ions and written into its chemical formula
a chemical process in which solvent molecules and molecules or ions of the solute combine to form a compound
6 places where electrons are found; 6 places with bonding electrons, 0 places with nonbonding electrons, 90 degrees
a molecule or a part of a molecule that contains both positively and negatively charged regions
