A chemical bond is the connection of different elements through the sharing, transferring or pooling of electrons.
Concept: Explanation for Bond Formation2m
Concept: Understanding an Ionic Bond3m
An ionic bond involves the transferring of an electron from one element to another element.
Concept: Understanding a Covalent Bond2m
A covalent bond involves the sharing of electron(s) between elements.
Concept: Understanding a Metallic Bond2m
A metallic "bond" isn't really a bond. Think of electrons as being loosely connected or "pooling" on the surface of many metals.
Depending on the element or elements involved we can describe bonds as forming: atomic elements, molecular elements, molecular compounds or ionic compounds.
Problem: Describe each of the following as either a(n): atomic element, molecular element, molecular compound or ionic compound.
Concept: Understanding the Ionic Bonding Model4m
An ionic bond forms when a cation and anion combine because of their opposite charges.
Problem: Determine the molecular formula of the compound formed from each of the following ions.3m
