"Bonding and Electron Configuration" for high school chemistry

a type of bond where valence electrons are transferred ionic bond
a type of bond where valence electrons are shared covalent bond
valence shell electron pair repulsion theory VSEPR
describes the arrangement of electrons in an atom, ex: 1s2, 2s2, 2p5 Electron Configuration
a negatively charged subatomic particle Electron
electrons fill the lowest energy levels first and then move outward as they have more energy aufbau principle
aka empty bus seat rule, electrons will not pair up within an orbital if there is another empty orbital in the same subshell Hund's Rule
a specifically shaped area where electrons are found orbital
a VSEPR molecule shape that is straight across, 1 bond, no lone pairs linear
a VSEPR molecule shape that is at an angle with 2 bonds and 1 or 2 lone pairs bent/angular
electrons spin in opposite directions within an orbital, one clockwise and one counterclockwise pauli exclusion principle
an ionic compound has this type of strucure with regularly repeating ions crystalline
a bond involving cations floating in a sea of electrons metallic
a diagram for an atom showing the valence electrons as dots lewis dot structure
an electron in the outer shell valence electron

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.
