Chemical Bonding

Chemistry Study Guide

Chemical Bond An attractive force between the atoms or ions in a compound.
Octet Rule States that atoms bond in order to achieve noble gas configurations (they get 8 valence electrons and become stable).
Ionic Bond Forms when one atom transfers it's valence electrons to another atom.
Ionic Compound The type of compound that contains ionic bonds (also called an ionic solid)
Covalent Bond Forms when atoms share their valence electrons.
Covalent Compound The type of compound that contains covalent bonds (also called a molecule or a molecular compound).
Electronegativity A measure of attraction that an atom has for a shared pair of electrons.
Nonpolar Covalent Bond Forms when electrons are equally shared
Polar Covalent Bond Forms when electrons are unequally shared.
Dipole Forms when electrons are shared unequal and results in one atom having a partial negative charge and the other atom having a partial positive charge.
Dot Symbol Shows an element's symbol and the element's valence electrons
Single Bond Covalent bond that forms when atoms share 1 pair of electrons.
Double Bond Covalent bond that forms when atoms share 2 pairs of electrons.
Triple Bond Covalent bond that forms when atoms share 3 pairs of electrons.
VSEPR Model Used to predict the shapes of molecules based upon the arrangement of electron pairs (shared and unshared) around the central atom in the molecule.
Polar molecule Has ends that have opposite partial charges
Nonpolar molecule Has ends that have the same or no partial charges.

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.
