Chemistry Vocab

Chemical Bonding The joining of atoms to form new substances
Ionic Bond Formed when electrons are transferred from one atom to another atom
Ion Charged Particle or and atom that gained or lost electrons
Crystal Lattice repeating 3 dimensional pattern that forms when ions bond
Covelent Bond The type of bond that forms when atoms share electrons instead of transferring them
Metallic Bond A special bond between metal ions and the electrons that swim around them
Malleability Metals can be pounded into thin sheets
Ductility Metals can be stretched and drawn into wires
Chemical Bond an interaction that holds two atoms together
Valence Electron the electrons in the outer level of an atom that causes atoms to bond together
Periodic Table of Elements A chart that organizes all the elements by atomic number and properties
Element The simplest form of matter that only contain one kind of atom
Electron A negative subatomic particle spinning outside nucleus of an atom

Atom Smallest piece of matter that has the same properties of the element it is in.
Electron Dot Diagram An easy way to show the valence electrons in an atom or chemical bond
Compound A set of elements that are chemically bonded and changed into new substances. Example NaCl = salt
Conductivity Metals can conduct heat to cook food or electricity through wires
Chemical Formula A shorthand way to use chemical symbols and numbers to represent a substance
Subscript Small number to the right of the element to show how many atoms of the element
Coefficient The large number that multiplies atoms of that element
Chemical Equation Uses symbols to show the relationship between the reactions and the product
