Ionic and covalent bond

Extracts from this document...


Notes for test of Unit 1 Atoms in a Solid, Liquid, Gas Compounds * Compounds are 2 or more elements chemically combined * The properties of a compound are different from the elements it has been made from When a compound forms: * The substances chemically react to form a new compound * The composition of a new compound is always the same * The properties of the new compound are very different from its element * The compound cannot be easily separated In a chemical reaction: * New chemical substances are formed * Generally the process is not easily reversed * Energy is often given out Diffusion * Diffusion involves the movement of particles from a region of higher concentration towards a region of lower concentration. Eventually the particles are evenly spread and the concentration is equal. ...read more.


* The bond is formed by sharing electrons between two atoms * H2O is a covalent bond Ionic bond * When two ions have opposite charges and they attract each other. The force between them is strong. * The bond is formed by giving electrons * When you give a electron your charge become positive and if you take your charge becomes negative Organic molecules * Carbohydrates are composed from carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen * They are found in all fruits, breads, milk, and pasta. * We need to eat carbohydrates because they are a source of energy * Monosaccharides: simple monomers such as glucose * Disaccharides: two monosaccharides added together such as sucrose * Carbohydrates are made of units called monosaccharides * M+M=Disaccharide * M+M+M+M+M+M+M+M etc.. = Polysaccharide like starch and cellulose which is made by plants and glycogen, which is made by animals * Lipids is a new name for fat * Lipids are composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen * They are found in dairy products, oils, crips, butter, olives etc... ...read more.


* Protons + neutrons = mass number * If you know the atomic number than you also know the number of electrons * Same atoms with different atomic masses are called isotopes * A mixture is when you mix elements, but are not chemically combined. You can seperate them by physical methods such as crystalization, filtration, and ..... (something with magnets) * All matter is made up of very small particles * The particles are moving all the time * Heavier particles move more slowly than lighter ones at the same temperature * The space between particles can be called the inter-molecular space * Electrons are a negative charge * Protons are a positive charge * Water with salt, sugar or any other stuff in it will decrease the freezing point and the boiling point will increase ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

    The sodium ion had an orange flame, the potassium had a lilac color, that calcium had a brick red color and the copper(II) had a green an blue flame. From this data, we can say that the color of the flame becomes lighter as we go down a group (comparing Na+ and K+)

  2. Identification of an unknown compound.

    it does not give information on the number of carbon atoms, or whether the compound is aromatic or aliphatic). The infrared spectrum provided has a sharp strong absorption peak at approximately 1700 cm-1 (shown by data sheet) and this peak indicates the presence of a C=O group.

  2. The role of mass customization and postponement in global logistics

    This definition is more specific than Alderson's stating that the postponed activities should take place after the receipt of customer orders. Two main types of postponement (implied by Alderson's original definition) are defined, 'form or manufacturing postponement' and 'logistical or time postponement'.

    in the molten [because their ions become free-moving], and aqueous solution [due to ion-dipole bonding allowing the movement of charged particles] state), it is likely to have a network lattice. So A is: "an ionic substance with a rigid network lattice structure of an infinite array and strong bonds in three dimensions."

  2. Ionic and Covalent Bonding ...

    This polar ionic bonding gives many of the atoms covalent characters. Sometimes one of the atoms become so highly polarised that they share the electrons and therefore can create covalent bonds. Covalent bonding takes place where two atoms have a single, unpaired electron in an atomic orbital; these orbitals will

    The results would've been invalid, since it would've still contained some water, but it would've been better to have something than nothing. 15. When we weigh the evaporating basin containing the mystery solid and no water, we can work out the mass of the solid and therefore the concentration of the solid dissolved in the liquid.

  2. Separating Salt & Fat from Crisps

    Eventually there was something burning at the bottom of the beaker, which gave a brown color. This gave a sweet smell, which later turned into the smell of burned potato. This probably means that some other substance was also in the filtrate.
