Lewis Structures

What are the 3 types of bonds? Ionic, covalent and metallic
An ionic bond ___ electrons and are composed of: transfers, a metal and nonmetal
A covalent bond is composed of two nonmetals
Octet rule is used with ___ bonding covalent
An atom has an octet when it has: 8 valence electrons - particularly stable
___ and ___ always has two paired dots for Lewis structures H and He
Bonding pair A pair of shared electrons
Lone pair Electrons not involved in bonding
Most electronegative atom? Fluorine
Dipole moment occurs: anytime there is a separation of positive and negative charge
Resonance structure 1 or 2 more skeletal structures that has the same skeletal structure formula
Formal charge A charge assigned to each atom to determine the best way to draw a lewis structure
Free radicals are also known as ____ odd-electron molecules
Odd electron molecules molecules and ions with an odd number of electrons in their Lewis structure. ex: NO
Incomplete octets molecules of ions w/ fewer than 8 electrons around an atom
Incomplete octets and ___ are the same thing electron deficient molecules
Expanded octets molecules that may have more than 8 electrons around an atom
3 exceptions to the octet rule? 1. odd elctrpn molecules 2. incomplete octets 3. expanded octets
Because of the d-orbital, atoms in the ___ period or later can accomodate more than 8 electrons 3rd
When bonds break, the process is ___ endothermic
When bonds form, the process is ___ exothermic
When we have different nonmetals comnined, this is a __ molecular compound
When we have the same nonmetals combined, this is a __ molecular element
Atomic element exists when we have an element by itself
Covalent bonding results from ___ sharing of electrons
Metals typically have a ___ electronegativity LOWER
Electronegativity has the same trend as ionization energy
Dipole arrows are used to: show the difference in electronegativity between 2 elements bonded together
The dipole arrow points towards: more electronegative element
Dipole arrows must be used if a polar bond exists
Nonpolar bond when electronegatives are the same
Polar bond the difference in electronegatives
Resonance structures are used when __ __ are involved multiple bonds
Bond order average strength of the bond
Bond energy the amount of energy required to break mole of bonds

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.
