Anion a negatively charged ion
Cation a positively charged ion
Chemical Bond an attraction between atoms that allows the formation of chemical substances that contain two or more atoms
Ionic Bond a chemical bond in which one atom loses an electron to form a positive ion and the other atom gains an electron to form a negative ion
Chemical Formula a representation of a substance using symbols for its constituent elements
Crystals solids whose particles are arranged in a lattice structure
Covalent Bond a chemical bond that involves sharing a pair of electrons between atoms in a molecule
Molecule a group of atoms bonded together, representing the smallest fundamental unit of a chemical compound that can take part in a chemical reaction
Polar Covalent Bond a type of covalent bond between two atoms in which electrons are shared unequally
Polyatomic Ion a charged chemical species composed of two or more atoms covalently bonded or of a metal complex that can be considered to be acting as a single unit
