metals to nonmetals
In ionic bonding, electrons are usually transferred from these types of atoms (A) to these types of atoms (B).
Have nonmetal ions from Groups 5A, 6A, & 7A lost or gained 3, 2, or 1 electrons, respectively?
An atom whose outer valence shell is less than half-filled will lose electrons and form a positively charged ion, called a/an
When an atom's outer electron shell is more than half-filled, the atom will gain electrons and form a negatively charged ion, called a/an
T or F: Ionic bonds are stronger and are far more common in organisms than are covalent bonds.
Hydrogen & Carbon, whose outer electron shells are half-filled, form this type of "sharing" bond quite easily.
This is a group of atoms that share the same electrical charge. Names of these groups must be memorized.
T or F: When naming covalent bonds, a prefix is used to match the subscript before the element name in both the 1st & 2nd nonmetals.
