chemical bonds, ions trends

trend pattern that continues and can be predicted due to properties and characteristics
chemical bond force that allow atoms or ions are bound in a molecule
ionic bond chemical bond between metals and nonmetals that TRANSFER electrons
covalent bond chemcial bond between 2 nonmetals that SHARE electrons
oxidation number a number assigned to an element in certain families that represents the number of electrons lost (or gained, if the number is negative) by an atom of that element in order to become stable with a full outer electron shell
ion charged atom
anion negatively charged atom (ion) that has gained electrons
cation postively charged atom (ion) that has lost electrons
charged being either + or - with an imbalance of electrons and protons
neutral no charge; equal number of electrons and protons
noble gases group 18 of the periodic table, full electron shells; stable elements
inert do not react; noble gases are inert
stable balanced atom or element that is not reactive, and does not need to do anything or bond to be balanced and equal in all ways; inert
