1

Chemical bonds

Forces that hold atoms together in a compound

2

Ionic bond

Transfer of electrons from metal to nonmetal

3

Covalent bond

A pair of electrons shared between 2 non metals

4

Ion

Loosing or gaining one or more electrons an atom can be converted into an ion

5

Cation

+charged ion

6

anion

- charged ion

7

Ionic compounds

Results from ionic bonds

8

Covalent Bond

Electron pairs are shared between 2 non metals

9

Octet Rule

Total number of bonds+line pairs should equal 4 which is a total of 8 electrons

10

Electronegative

Measure of the ability of Anton to attract bonding elements(opposites attract)

11

No polar covalent bonds

Bonding electrons are shared equally

12

Polar covalent bond

Bonding electrons are not shared equally due to differences in electronegativity

13

Compound

Substance that consists of 2 or more different elements
