Molecular vs Ionic Compounds
Molecular - nometal + nonmetal (covalent bond) - prefixes Ionic - Metal + nonmetal (held together by electrostatic forces, cation + anion) - no prefixes
measure of the ability of an atom's nucleus to attract electrons from a different atoms within a covalent bond

Valence electrons
knowt flashcard image
consisting of two atoms
which elements are diatomic?
Hydrogen. Nitrogen. Oxygen. Fluorine. Chlorine. Bromine. Iodine
How do you know if a compound is polar or nonpolar?
Polar molecules are asymmetric, either containing lone pairs of electrons on a central atom or having atoms with different electronegativities bonded
Formula for each molecular compound a. sulfur dioxide b. carbon tetraflouride c. disphosphorous pentoxide
a. SO₂ b. CF₄ c. P₂O5
Molecular Compounds Prefixes and Suffixes
Prefixes 1- mono 2- di 3- tri 4- tetra 5- penta 6- hexa 7- hepta 8- octa, 9- nona 10- deca Suffix -ide
Why does a metal form a positive ion with bonding?
Metals tend to form positive (+ charged) ions because they have low numbers of valence electrons, which they can lose easily
Give the formula for each of the following ionic compounds a. calcium iodide b. copper(II) chloride c. ammonium sulfate
a. CaI₂ b. CuCl₂ b.(NH₄)₂SO₄
Families and Groups

Covalent bond
A covalent bond consists of the mutual sharing of one or more pairs of electrons between two atoms
What is the strongest and weakest type of covalent bond?
Strongest - triple bond Weakest - single bond
Formula for Carbon Tetrachloride
Formula for Calcium chloride
Nomenclature for dinitrogen dioxide
Which element is more elctronegative? K, Ca, As, Br, Kr

polarity is a separation of electric charge leading to a molecule or its chemical groups having an electric dipole moment, with a negatively charged end and a positively charged end

steric number
The number of atoms, groups, or lone pairs around a central atom
lone pairs
pair of valence electrons that are not shared with another atom in a covalent bond
