10 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
How electrons are used
IB electrons are transmittd from metals to nonmetals

CB attract e- (shared)
types of elements involved
IB metals and nonmetals

CB nonmetals
basic unit of compound
IB formula unit _____

CB molecules
force of attraction between the basic units
IB electrostatic force (depends on size and charge)
force of attraction
IB electrostatic force (depends on size and charge)

CB intermolecular forces, bond length (dpends on polarity), dipole-dipole forces
physical state of compunds
IB solid crystals

CB solid,liquid,gas, (polarity)
compare bond lengths and strengths
IB strength depends on charge and size of meatter; very strong (pack tightly together)

CB shorter bonds=stronger bonds (single is longest)
compaire melting/boiling points of compunds
IB strong forces, so high melt temps and boinling temps.

CB forces between bonds are not stron, so melt and boil points are at low temps
compaire volatillity of compounds
IB do not baporize at room temps

CB vaparize at room temps
electrical conductivity of compounds
IB if the electrolytes are molten or dissoved,it will conduct

CB not a good conductor of electricity
