Chap 8 Covalent

covalent bond a bond formed by the sharing of electrons between atoms
diatomic molecule a molecule consisting of two atoms.
molecule a neutral group of atoms joined together by covalent bonds
molecular compound a compound that is composed of molecules
polar bond a covalent bond between atoms in which the electrons are shared unequally
polyatomic ion a tightly bound group of atoms that behaves as a single unit and has a positive or negative charge
unshared pair a pair of valence electrons that is not shared between atoms
VSEPR Theory because electron pairs repel, molecules adjust their shapes so that valence electron pairs are as far apart as possible
