Covalent Bond

METALLIC BONDINGThis page introduces the bonding in metals. It explains how the metallic bond arises and why its strength varies from metal to metal.What is a metallic bond?Metallic bonding in sodiumMetals tend to have high melting points and boiling points suggesting strong bonds between the atoms. Even a metal like sodium (melting point 97.8°C) melts at a considerably higher temperature than the element (neon) which precedes it in the Periodic Table.Sodium has the electronic structure 1s22s22p63s1...

Biology Test Notes

in orbitals are called electron cloud and energy levels Orbitals can hold up to two electrons Two main types of bonds are ionic bonds and covalent bonds Covalent bond is sharing of electrons and ionic bonds are the transfer of electrons Valency is the number of single covalent bonds an atom can form Non polar covalent bond are the equal sharing of electrons Polar covalent bonds are unequal sharing of electrons Chemical equations: Reactants --- Products Molecule: unit of matter in which two...

its molecular kinetic energy. Solidification Crystallization Solids are incompressible and are very dense relative to gases. 13.2 Intermolecular forces: the forces between individual particles of a substance. Intramolecular forces: covalent and ionic bond within compounds. Attractive forces between molecules are mainly due to hydrogen bonding. Ion-ion attraction The energy of attraction between two oppositely charged ions is directly proportional to the charges on the ions and inversely...

Ionic and Covalent Bonds Lab

Lab Report Ionic and Covalent Bonds Lab: Ionic and Covalent Bonds Introduction: The purpose of this experiment was to explore the properties of chemical substances that can be used to identify the types of bonds in a chemical substance using a laboratory procedure. The two types of bonds being identified were ionic and covalent. Based on a substance’s properties, how can you determine whether its bonds are ionic or covalent? This is the question I posed before starting the experiment....

Intermolecular Forces

distribution exists can affect the strength of intermolecular forces. And despite having variable force strengths, all intermolecular forces are considered weak compared to chemical bonds, or intramolecular forces. Chemical bonds are not only stronger; they are also more permanent. The energy costs involved in breaking chemical bonds are much higher than ones needed to overcome intermolecular forces. There are five types of intermolecular forces: ion-ion forces, ion-dipole forces, ion-induced dipole/dipole-induced...

maximum rate is 37֯C ( human body temparature ) , but it still can function below this temparature as long it did’t exceed 40֯C that cause the denature of enzyme . So , when the liver is boiled under temperature of 95֯c , the hydrogen bond , disulphide bond , ionic bond will break down and protein structure is become uncoiled and unfolded. This lead to the 3D shape of enzyme is changed . The active side of the enzyme is also changed and cannot be binded by the substrate ( hydrogen peroxide ) . This...

Gilbert Newton Lewis Biography Gilbert Newton Lewis, known as “GN” by his colleagues, is one of the most distinguished chemists of the twentieth century. His work in thermodynamics, the electron pair bond, and acidbase theory is well known in the scientific community. Many of his biographies, including one in the NEACT Journal, 1 have presented and analyzed his scientific contributions.2,3 Recently, two people have made unique contributions to a better understanding of the man and his ...

Covalent Bond

 Covalent Bonds Covalent bonds are formed when atoms share electrons, one from each atom in a single bond, to form electron pairs, usually making their outermost shells up to eight electrons by this means. This would make them more stable, less reactive and an electronic structure like a noble gas.  They are most frequently formed between pairs of non-metallic elements. Non-metallic elements usually have from four to eight electrons in their outermost shells, the so-called valency electrons, which...
