Chemical Bonding

Some substances, such as copper, can be found in nature in element form while other substances, such as sodium chloride, only exist in nature combined with other elements in compounds. As you study Chemical Bonding, you will discover the Octet Rule and learn what makes an element stable. Following the Summary of Types of Chemical Bonds, you will learn to distinguish between Metallic Bonding, Ionic Bonding and Covalent Bonding. Expand beyond categorizing bonding and learn to demonstrate how bonds occur with our Lewis Dot Diagrams of Molecules: Triple Bonds lessons. Elevate your critical thinking skills within the topic of Chemical Bonding by mastering VSEPR: Central Atoms, which explains the details of the Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion rule that is crucial to understanding prediction. This course helps you gain a broad yet nuanced comprehension of concepts, ideas and application of Chemical Bonding. ​
