a mutual electrical attraction between the nuclei and valence electrons of different atoms that binds the atoms together
Chemical bonding that results from the electrical attraction between cations and anions
Non-Polar Covalent Bond
a covalent in which the bonding electrons are shared equally be the bonded atoms, resulting in a balanced distribution of electrical charge
the relative numbers of atoms of each kind in a chemical compound by using atomic symbols and numerical subscripts
shows the types and numbers of atoms combined in a single molecule of a molecular compound
an electron-configuration notation in which only the valence electrons of an atom of a particular element are shown, indicated by dots placed around the element's symbol
formulas in which atomic symbols represent nuclei and inner-shell electrons, dot-pairs or dashes between two atomic symbols represent electron paris in covalent bonds, and dots adjacent to only one atomic symbol represent unshared electrons
indicates the kind, number, arrangement, and bonds but not the unshared pairs of hte atoms in a molecule
refers to bonding in molecules or ions that cannot be correctly represented by a single Lewis structure
composed of positive and negative ions that are combined so that the numbers of positive and negative charges are equal
the simplest collection of atoms from which an ionic compund's formula can be established
the energy released when one mole of an ionic crystalline compound is formed from gaseous ions
the chemical bonding that results form the attraction between metal atoms and the surrounding sea of electrons
the ability of a substance to be drawn, pulled, or extruded through a small opening to produce a wire
states that repulsion between the sets of valence-level electrons surrounding an atom causes these sets to be oriented as far apart as possible
the mixing to two or more atomic orbitals of similar energies on the same atom to produce new hybrid atomic orbitals of ezual energies
orbitals of equal energy produced by the combination of two or more orbitals on the same atom
the intermolecular force in which a hydrogen atom that is bonded to a highly electronegative atom is attracted to an unshared pair of electrons of an electronegative atom in a nearby molecule
