HS-PS1-a Evaluate the merits of different atomic and molecular representations based on their ability to explain a given property of matter or phenomenon
HS-PS1-b Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outer energy levels of atoms
Read Chapter 6.2 Covalent Bonding
Outline the reading in your Science Notebook & include major points and diagrams/tables.
You should focus on the following essential questions:
-How are atoms held together in a covalent bond
- What happens when atoms don't share electrons equally
- What factors determine whether a molecule is polar
-How do attractions between polar molecules compare to attractions between nonpolar molecules
