Chapter 8 vocab

VSEPR theory valence-shell electron-pair repulsion theory; molecules adjust their shapes so that valence electron pairs are as far apart as possible
Tetrahedral angle a bond angle of 109.5 that results when a central atom forms four bonds directed toward the center of a regular tetrahedron
Nonpolar covalent bond a covalent bond in which the electrons are shared equally by the two atoms
Polar covalent bond a covalent bond between atoms in which the electrons are shared unequally
Dipole a molecule that has two poles, or regions with opposite charges
Polar molecule a molecule in which one side of the molecule is slightly negative and the opposite side is slightly positive
Dipole interactions intermolecular forces resulting from the attraction of oppositely charged regions of polar molecules
Dispersion forces attractions between molecules caused by the electron motion on one molecule affecting the electron motion on the other through electrical forces
Hydrogen bonds attractive forces in which a hydrogen covalently bonded to a very electronegative atom
Network solids a solid in which all of the atoms are covalently bonded to each other
Molecular orbitals an orbital that applies to the entire molecule
Bonding orbital a molecular orbital that can be occupied by two electrons of a covalent bond
Sigma bond a bond formed when two atomic orbitals combined for form a molecular orbital that is symmetrical around the axis connecting the two atomic nuclei
Pi bond a covalent bond in which the bonding electrons are most likely to be found in sausage-shaped regions above and below the bond axis of the bonded atoms
Hybridization the mixing of several atomic orbitals to form the same total number of equivalent hybrid orbitals
Van der Waals forces the two weakest intermolecular attractions- dispersion interactions and dipole forces

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.
