Chemical Bonds

DHS PS Ch 18 (2018/2019)

This is composed of symbols and subscripts indicating the number of atoms of an element in a compound? chemical formula
Atoms will form compounds when the compound is more _______ than separate atoms? stable
Why are noble gases more chemically stable than other elements? because they have a complete outer energy level
What is the force that holds atoms together in a compound? chemical bond
When a substance formed from two or more elements in which the exact combination and proportion of elements is always the same it is called? a compound
What tells what elements a compound contains and the exact number of the atoms of each element in a unit? chemical formula
What happens to elements' individual properties when they combine to form compounds? compounds have properties that are not anything like those of individual elements
What does subscript mean? written below
What does a subscript indicate? how many atoms of that element are in a unit of the compound
Why do noble gases rarely form compounds? becasue they each have a complete outer energy level already
When is an atom chemically stable? when its outer energy level is complete
Atoms with partially stable outer energy levels have 3 options to obtain a stable outer energy level, what are they? they can lose, gain, or share electrons
What happens to the inner energy level when outer electrons are removed? a complete inner energy level is revealed
When an element combines with another element, its indvidual properties? are given up and new properties are formed
What is the maximum number of electrons that Hydrogen and Helium can hold in their outer energy levels? 2
Chemical compounds are ___________? more stable than their individual elements
The smallest piece of matter that retains the property of the element is called a ___________? atom
An atom that has lost or gained electrons is called an _________? ion
The force of attraction between the opposite charges of the ions in an ionic compound is called an ____________? ionic bond
An attraction between atoms when they share electrons is called a ______________? covalent bond
A neutral particle that forms as a result of electron sharing is called a _________ ? molecule
An overall neutral molecule that has a slightly positive and negative is called a _________? polar molcule
A molecule in which electrons are shared equally in bonds is called a __________? nonpolar molecule
Atoms lose or gain electrons to meet what standard _________? a stable energy level
Some of the most common compounds are made by the loss and gain of just ____ electron(s)? 1
What does superscript mean? written above
What is indicated in the superscript position? it indicates the atom's charge
When an atom loses an electron, what charge does it become? 1+
When an atom gains an electron, what charge does it become? 1-
What is the resulting charge on the compound fomred between two charged ions? a neutral compound
What happens in an ionic bond? a transfer of electrons takes place
Ionic bonds usually are formed by bonding between? metals and nonmetals
The result of an ionic bond is a? compound
The result of a covalent bond is a? molecule
How many electrons are shared in a single covalent bond? 2 or 1 pair
How many pairs of electrons are shared in a double bond? 2 pair
How many pairs of electrons are shared in a triple bond? 3 pair
What does the term polar mean? have opposite ends
Compare and contrast polar and nonpolar molecules: they are both the result of covalent bonds. Polar molecules have slightly oppositely charged ends wile nonpolar molecules do not.
NaCl is the chemical formula for what? sodium chloride
What do both polar and nonpolar molecules have in common? covalent bonds
In a covalent bond, electrons are? shared
What kind of a charge does an ionic compound carry? neutral
The iodine ion carries what type of charge? 1- charge
In sodium chloride, which atom loses an electron? sodium
When elements form bonds, it changes their? chemical and physical properties
What is a binary compound? a compound composed of two elements
What is an oxidation number? a number that tells you how many electrons an a tom has lost, gained, or shared to become stable.
What is a polyatomic ion? a positively or negatively charged, covalently bonded group of atoms
Even though compounds are made from charged ions, the compound itself is? neutral
How is a covalent molecule named? Use the greek prefix to indicate the number of atoms involved
An atom that has gained or lost electrons is called an? ion
What tells what elements make up a compound and the ratios of the atoms of those elements? chemical formula
A molecule that has a positive end and a negative end is what type of molecule? polar
What type of bond forms between atoms when they share electrons? covalent
A positive or negative number that is assigned to an element to show its combining ability in a compound is an? oxidation number
