bonds holds atoms together
covalent bonds bond formed by sharing electrons between two nuclei
ionic bonds bond formed by the transfer of electrons from one atom to another
asymmetrical molecules a molecule that lacks identical atomic structure on each side on of an axis
dipole-dipole forces FORCE OF ATTRACTION
double covalent bond sharing of two pairs of electrons between two nuclei
hydrogen bond the attraction of a hydrogen atom in one molecule for a nitrogen, oxygen,or fluorine atom in another molecule. ( 7,8,9)
ion an atom which has gained or lost electrons. a charged particle
Lewis dot diagram LED a diagram that depicts valence electrons as dots around the atomic symbol.
malleability a metallic property that allows them to be hammered into shape
metallic bond the attraction of valence electrons for the positive kernels of metallic atoms, a mobile sea of electrons
multiple covalent bond a double or triple covalent bond
nonpolar covalent bond bond formed by the equal sharing of a pair of electrons between two nuclei
octet stable valence electron configuration of 8 electrons
octet rule the atoms generally react by gaining, losing or sharing electrons in order to achieve a complete octet of eight valence electrons - the configuration of a noble gas.
polar covalent bond a bond formed by the unequal sharing of electrons between two nuclei
symmetrical molecules a molecule with identical atomic structure on each side of the axis.
triple covalent bond the sharing of three pairs of electrons between two nuclei.
valence electrons electrons in the outer most energy level of an atom
