What is a double bond?

A double bond has two pairs of shared electrons. In compounds suchas alkenes (such as ethane, C 2 H 4 ) there is"sigma bond" where the electron density lies between the atoms anda pi bond where the electrons are above and below the bond axis.there are lots of pictures about

What does chlorine bond with?

Chlorine is a very reactive element which bonds with many otherelements, including carbon, hydrogen, calcium, magnesium, and manyothers.

How does chlorine bond?

Chlorine can bond with non-metals like its self and regular metals. When it bonds with anouther non-metal it will form an covalent bond and when bonding with a metal it forms an ionic bond.

Why is chlorine and bromine a covalent bond?

the ions of Cl and Br both are negative 1. this means Cl and Br need one more electron to obtain a full shell. to complete their shells, Cl and Br form a covalent bond. also, Cl and Br are both nonmetals. 2 nonmetals cam only form a covalent bond.

Does chlorine contain polar bonds?

Chlorine gas (Cl 2 ) does not contain polar bonds. A bond is polar if the difference in electronegativity between the two atoms are about 0.4 to 1.7. Since the two atoms in the Cl 2 bond are the same, the electronegativity difference is 0 and therefore the bond is completely non-polar.

Is chlorine a covalent or ionic bonding?

can be either ionic or covanelt.. The covalent bond of chlorine can be shown by Cl 2 because an electron pair is shared. (each chlorine atom only has 7 electrons so they share one each with the other to complete their octet). The ionic bonding of chlorine can be shown by NaCl: Ionic bonding occur (MORE)

Why sodium and chlorine form a bond?

Sodium(a cation) and cholorine (an anion) form an ionic bond because of their differences in electronegativity. Electronegativety (a dimensionless unit) of ions generally increases from the bottom left of the periodic table to the upper right. When given the electronegativety of ions (Sodium=0.93, C (MORE)

How many common bonds does chlorine have?

Chlorine usually forms ionic bonds with metals and covalent bonds with nonmetals,but it also forms coordinate bonds in some cases ,in HCl chlorine may form hydrogen bonding.

How many bonds does chlorine make?

Chlorine has 7 valence electrons, but it would like 8, so typically it will form one bond. There are cases, however, where chlorine will exceed the octet rule and form more bonds.

Which bond is more stable single bond or double bond?

Depends what you mean by stable. Generally a single bond is more resistant to rxn which would break all bonds between the two species previously bonded then a double bond is. A double bond, however, is generally a shorter bond. A double bond is more reactive

Does chlorine make a covalent bond with itself?

Covalent bonds are between two non-metals while ionic bonds are made between a metal and a non-metal. Chlorine is a non-metal, so a covalent bond forms in a diatomic molecule of chlorine.

What is the Covalent Bond for Chlorine and Chlorine?

a covalent bond means sharing of electrons the outer most electrons on chlorine shell is 7since chlorine is a diatomic molecule (cl 2) it comprises of 2 chlorine atoms having 7in each valence shell. for this molecule to be stable it must attain the stable octet configuration 8electrons in the (MORE)

What bond is formed with Nitrogen and chlorine?

Covalent. Nonpolar covalent. Nitrogen and chlorine have very similar electronegativities. Therefore the electron will be shared equally between them and the bond will be nonpolar covalent. The larger the difference between the electronegativities the more polar the bond.

Can chlorine form hydrogen bond?

No. Only nitrogen, oxygen, and fluorine allow hydrogen bonding. But, hydrogen bonded to carbon and sulfur (selenium?) can also participate in strong hydrogen bonding when these atoms are bound to electronegative elements or ligands. (Eg. HCN, CHCl3, CH3COSH) Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q (MORE)

How does chlorine bond with other elements?

it depends on how much electron are on the outer energy level because if it doesnt have an equal amount of electrons then its not stable so it would bond with another unstable atom or element

Why does sodium and chlorine form a stable bond?

Sodium and chlorine form bonds because of their valence electrons. the sodium atom has one electron on the outer ring, or level, while chlorine has 7. an atom is considered stable if it has 8 valence electrons, and since the two atoms have a total valence of 8, they will form a stable bond.

Can two chlorine atoms bond?

Yes, two chlorine atoms can bond, to form Cl 2 , which is the elemental form of chlorine.. The individual atoms do not gain or lose electrons but share them forming a covalent bond.

Why do peptide bonds act as a double bond?

They don't, exactly. However, both the nitrogen and the carbon participating in the bond are in the sp2 hybridization state, and this allows for a resonance structure making the group planar and restricting rotation about the carbon-nitrogen bond.

What kind of bond can chlorine atom form?

Chlorine can form both ionic and covalent bonds. For example:- . NaCl- Here bond between chlorine and Sodium is ionic. . HCl- Here bond between Hydrogen and Chlorine is covalent.

What is the formula when bonding carbon and chlorine?

There is not one particular formula to be given, because there are (already) 4 possibilities for one C atom to bind with chlorine (from mono- to tetra-chloro-methane): . CH 3 Cl . CH 2 Cl 2 . CHCl 3 . CCl 4 With 2 C atoms 10 possibilities (from mono- upto hexa-chloro-ethane) and wi (MORE)

Is chlorine a ionic bond or a covalent bond?

The single bond in Cl 2 is covalent. Chlorine is an element. It normally comes in the form of covalently bonded molecules but can exist to a small degree as single, unbonded atoms.

What type of bond is silicon and chlorine?

Polar Covalent 1.Both silicon and chlorine are nonmetals which means they have to make a covalent bond. 2. Silicon has an electronegativity (an atom's ability to attract electrons) of 1.8 while chlorine has an electronegativity of 3.0. This causes chlorine to have a negative charge, making the (MORE)

Why BCl3 does not form a double bond with one chlorine atom and single bond with other two chlorine atoms?

BCl3 has three single bonds because with 3 single bonds the formal charges of all the atoms are zero. With one double bond and two single bonds the formal charges are incorrect because Cl is more electronegative than B, yet it has a positive formal charge. Despite the incomplete octet on Boron when (MORE)

Is a covalent bond a double bond?

A double bond is a covalent bond, but not all covalent bonds are double bonds; some bonds may be single or triple (or even in rare cases, quadruple) instead.

Bond between sodium an chlorine?

Sodium and chlorine react together to fom sodium chloride (common salt) which is an ionic compund with an ionic formula of Na + Cl -

Why will fluorine not ionically bond with chlorine?

An ionic bond is formed between two atoms only when the difference in electronegativity between the two atoms is over 2. The electronegativity difference between flourine and chlorine is about 0.5 and hence they will not form ionic bond. Instead they bind to each other covalently.

What if one of the bonds is a double bond?

"What if" is a sign of a poorly thought out question. It's possible to ask a question that starts with "what if" that can actually be answered, but it's a lot less likely than questions that are more specific.. There are lots of things that could happen if a bond in a particular molecule is a doub (MORE)

What is the difference between free chlorine and bonded chlorine?

When chlorine is not chemically bonded to another element, it takes the form of a poisonous green gas (which was used as a weapon during WW I, although it was found not to be poisonous enough, and other, even more poisonous gases were developed). When chlorine is in a chemical compound the result is (MORE)

What is a double bond-?

A double bond in typically involves 2 shared pairs of electronsbonding for example 2 carbon atoms in alkenes , carbon and oxygenatoms in ketones, aldehydes and carboxylic acids.

Why does chlorine bond with sodium?

The outer spare electron from the sodium atom goes over to thechlorine atom. The sodium ion now has a positive charge and thechloride ion now has a negative charge. The two oppositely-chargeions are electrostatically attracted and form an ionic bond.
