Chemical Bonding - COOK 2018 -1
Terms in this set (21)
electrons located in the outermost shell (valence shell) of the atom, that can be transferred to or shared with another atom
a chemical bond resulting from the sharing of an electron pair(s) between atoms
a chemical bond resulting from electrical attraction between cations and anions
Non-Polar Covalent Bond
a covalent bond in which the bonding electrons are shared equally by the bonded atoms
a measure of the tendency of an atom to attract electrons
the energy required to break a chemical bond and form neutral isolated atoms (this is not on this test, but this information will come up again in thermo-chemistry...be familiar)
a formula that indicates the relative numbers of atoms of each kind in a chemical compound by using chemical symbols and numerical subscripts
a compound composed of only two elements
a molecule containing only two atoms
a diagram in which chemical symbols represent nuclei and dots represent valence electrons
a neutral group of atoms that are held together by covalent bonds
a bond produced by the sharing of one pair of electrons between two atoms. represented in lewis structures by a straight line.
Polar Covalent Bond
having an uneven distribution of electrical charge
a number assigned to an element in chemical combination that represents the number of electrons lost or gained by an atom of that element in the compound.
a positively charged ion
a negatively charged ion
an ion made of only one element
a charged group of covalently bonded atoms
a measure of the size of an atom.
a measure of the amount of energy necessary to remove an electron from an atom.
An ionic compound whose aqueous solution conducts an electric current
