1

the sharing or transfer of electrons to attain stable electron configurations among the bonding atoms 

Chemical bond

2

transfer of electrons between metals and non metals 

Ionic bond

3

transfer of electrons between 2 nonmetals 

Covalent bond

4

a rule that states that an atone will give up, accept, or share electrons in order to fill outre electron shell

Octet rule

5

electrons that are shared between 2 atoms in a chemical bond 

Bonding pairs

6

electrons that are on one atom in a Lewis structure

Lone pair

7

2 or more Lewis structures that are necessary to describe the bonding in a molecule 

Resonance structure

8

theory that allows prediction of the shapes of molecules based on the idea that electrons either as lone pairs or as bonding pairs repel one another 

Vsper theory

9

a general term for a lone pair, single bond, or multiple bond in a molecule

Electron groups

10

the geometric arrangement of the atoms in a molecule

Molecule geometry

11

the ability of an element to attract electrons within a covalent bond 

Electronegativity

12

a measure of the separation of charge in a bond or in a molecule 

Dipole

13

a covalent bond between atoms of different electronegativites.  Polar covalent bonds have a dipole moment 

Polar covalent bond

14

a molecule with polar bonds that add together to create a net dipole moment 

Polar molecule

15

a model that predicts how atoms bond together to form molecules

Bonding theories

16

a drawing that represents chemical bonds between atoms as shared of transferred electrons; the valence electrons of atoms are represented as dots  

Lewis dot structure

17

the name for the 2 electrons corresponding to a stable  Lewis structure no hydrogen and helium
