Bond Character And Type

Presentation Description

This lesson gives an overview of the difference between ionic, covalent & metallic bonding.


Presentation Transcript

Ionic Bonds:

Ionic Bonds Complete transfer of e -  creates charged ions Electrostatic force holds the two ions together; thus, we have an ionic bond NaCl MgCl 2

Covalent Bonds:

Covalent Bonds Shared pair of e - = covalent bond Small e - neg difference A molecule is the result of 2 or more atoms bonding covalently . Cl 2 H 2 O CH 4 O 2 CO 2

Metallic Bonds:

Metallic Bonds Metal atoms of the same type don’t always form covalent bonds Outer electron levels will overlap Electrons are delocalized  “sea of electrons” Electrons can flow easily The delocalized electrons holding the metal atoms together = metallic bond Delocalized Electrons

Ionic Compounds:

Ionic Compounds high melting points ability to conduct electricity in liquid, aqueous, & gaseous states solids are non-conducting usually soluble in water sharply defined crystals

Covalent Compounds:

Covalent Compounds Low melting points Do not conduct electricity Brittle
