Properties of a covalent bond
Diatomic molecules
a molecule of 2 identical atoms
octet rule
a concept of chemical bonding theory that is based on the assumption that atoms tend to have either empty valance shells or full valence shells of eight electrons

A structural formula shows the connectivity of the atoms in the molecule.
lone pair
a _______ (or non bonding electron air) occupies more apace than a bonding pair
Chemical Bond
An attractive force that holds together the atoms, ions, or groups of atoms in a molecule or compound.
Lewis Structure
_______ shows valence electrons
atomic symbols represent
nuclei and inner-shell electrons
electron pairs in covalent bonds
dot-pairs or dashes between two atomic symbols represent
unshared electrons

elements form chemical bonds because
they want to be stable
a measure of the ability of an atom in a chemical compound to attract electrons
noble gases have outer electron shells that are already full
why are there no electronegativity values given for most of the noble gases?
which element on the periodic table is the most electronegative
electronegativity difference for ionic bonds
electroneg. difference for polar covalent bonds

Ionic Bond
a bond that results from electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions. The cation is positively charged, while the anion is negatively charged.
crystal lattice
a 3-D system of points designating the centers of components that make up the substance
Covalent bond
a bond formed when atoms share one or more pairs of electrons
polar covalent bond
a covalent bond in which a shared pair of electrons is held more closely by one of the atoms
non-polar covalent bond
a covalent bond in which the bonding electrons are shared equally by the bonding atoms, resulting in balanced distribution of electrical charge
how are covalent bonds formed
as atoms near each other, the nuclei and electrons are attracted to each other, which corresponds in a decrease in the potential energy
metallic bond
a bond formed by the attraction between positively charged metal ions and the electrons around them
how to metallic bonds get their properties
within a metal, the vacant orbitals in the atoms' outer energy levels overlap, which allows the outer electrons of the atoms to roam freely throughout the entire metal (sea of electrons)
list some characteristics of metals
malleability, ductility, heat and electrical conductivity
a bond formed between and metal and a _______ is generally classified as ionic. an example of this would be the bond formed between lithium and flourine.
in an ionic bond the electrons are _______ between atoms
non polar
A non-polar molecule is a molecule which shares electrons equally and therefore, lacks oppositely charged ends
a molecule in which the centroid of the positive charges is different from the centroid of the negative charges.
_______ bonds are found only in pure metal elements and consists of positively charged ions surrounded by a _______ of electrons
malleability, ductility, electrical and heat conductivity
this "sea" of electrons is free to move throughout the entire sample. this freedom of movement gives metals their basic physical characteristics such as
Bond polarity
In covalent bonds, the electrons may not necessarily be shared equally between two atoms. _______helps describe unequal sharing of electrons in the bond.
ionic bonds vs molecular bonds
ionic- force that holds ions together is strong (attraction between + and - charges)
