Introduce ionic and covalent bonding as well as terminology used to describe covalent bonds.
This packet contains a video introducing ionic and covalent bonding. A list of vocabulary from the video is included in this packet.
An introduction to ionic and nonpolar covalent bonding.
Bond - The transfer or sharing of electrons between two atoms in order for each atom to obtain a more stable electron configuration
Ionic Bond - The resulting electrostatic force that holds together charged atoms following a transfer of electrons.
Ion - A charged species
Anion - a negatively charged ion
Cation - a postiviely charged ion
Covalent Bond - The sharing of electrons between two atoms
Single Bond - A covalent bond consisting of two shared electrons
Double Bond - A covalent bond consisting of four shared electrons
Triple Bond - A covalent bond consisting of six shared electrons
Bond Order - A numerical value indicating the number of covalent bonds shared between two atoms
Bond Length - The distance between the two nuclei of a covalent bond
Nonpolar Covalent Bond - A bond in which electrons are shared equally
Polar Covalent Bond - A bond in which electrons are shared unequally
