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.

    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

    Often the use of trigonometry is called for in order to solve vectors. Characteristics ionic compounds 1. Crystalline solids at room temperature. 2. They have HIGHER melting points and boiling points compared to covalent compounds. 3. They conduct electrical current in molten or solution state.

  1. Affect of concentration on reaction

    Effect of temperature on reactions Increasing the temperature increases the reaction rate. This is because more energy is given to the particles, so that they move faster, colliding more frequently result in more chance for a reaction to occur. Also the energy given has the effect on greater proportion of collisions to overcome the activation energy.
