Chemical Bond
mutal electrical attraction between Nuclei and valence electrons of different atoms that binds them together
independent particles= relatively high potential energy. Nature favors arrangemtns in which potential engery is ______.
This means that most atoms are less stable existing by themselves.
When the atoms bond together, do they increase or decrease potential energy.
decrease; thus creating mroe stalbe arrangemetns of matter
Main group metals tend to lose or gain electons? To form ____ions or cations.
Define Inonic Bonding
Chemical bonding that resutls form electrical attraction between large numbers of cations and anions
1.7 - 3.3
Covelent Bonding results from..
the sharing of electons pairs between two atoms
Nonpolarcovaletn bond
a convelant bond- bonding electrons= equaly electrons shared equally = (same one)
0 - .03 or 0% to 5%
idential non-metals
Polar Covelent
0.3 to 1.7 or 5% to 50%
unequal attraction for the shared electrons
differnt- non metals
