Ionic Compounds

Chemical bond -the force that holds two atoms together -formed by the attraction of positive and negatives
How do atoms form an octet? -octect: full outer energy level
What is a cation? How does it form? What types of elements lose electrons? -cation: a positively-charged atom -forms when atoms lose electrons -metals lose electrons
What is an anion? How does it form? What types of elements lose electrons? -anion: a negatively charged atom -forms when electrons gain electrons -nonmetals gain electrons
The electrostatic force that holds oppositely charged particles together in an ionic compound is an: ionic bond
What is an ionic compound? compounds that contain ionic bonds
Binary compounds contain: a cation and an anion (ex: NaCl)
Charge of group 1 +1
Charge of group 2 +2
Charge of group 13 +3
Charge of group 14 +4
Charge of group 15 -3
Charge of group 16 -2
Charge of group 17 -1
Charge of group 18 no charge
What is a crystal lattice? -the repeating pattern of particle packing in an ionic compound -shap and pattern may vary based on ions
Properties of ionic substances -high melting/boiling point -solid at roomn temperature -brittle -molten solids conduct electricity 0awueous solutions conduct electricity -one particle is referred to as a formula unit
Why do molten or aqueous solutions conduct electricity? -in a solution of molten ions of an ionic bonds break apart (dissociation) -solids can't conduct electricity because they have bonds intact
Endothemric -take in heat
Exothermic -release heat
The formation of ionic compounds from positive and negative ions is always Exothermic
What is a formula unit? -the very simplest ratio of ions in an ionic compound
What is a monotomic ion? -elements when you can get their charge off of the periodic table
How to write a formula for a binary ionic compound -name the metal -name teh nonmetal, change ending to -ide

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
