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
yes, chlorine is a diatomic molecule, meaning two chlorine atoms can combine together to form a molecule.
\nIf it bonds with another nonmetal, it will create a covalent bond. If it bonds with a metal, it will create an ionic bond.
Chlorine is a very reactive element which bonds with many otherelements, including carbon, hydrogen, calcium, magnesium, and manyothers.
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.
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.
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.
Calcium will bond with chlorine, but not with sodium. Sodium is a metal like calcium, so they will not bond with each other.
Chlorine only has one available bond because it has 7 valence electrons and a full shell would be 8, therefore it forms single bonds.
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…s when positive and negative valency's come together so the valency equals 0. Na has a valency of +1, Cl has a valency of -1 so these two elements come together by their charge. (MORE)
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…holorine=3.16) the difference between the anion's and cation's electronegativety must be greater than 1.7 to form an ionic bond. Which in this case, it is. If the difference amounts to less than 1.7 a covalent bond will form. This is chemical bonding in a nut shell. Hope it helps! (MORE)
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.
One. A double bond is actually made up of one sigma bond and one pi bond.
I know sodium is one but I am still checking for the others. Someone said all but the noble gases.
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.
It is because when these two elements bond with each other, each one gets an octet of electrons, which makes them stable.
The bond formed by chlorine is a single bond- e.g. in Cl 2 , in HCl
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
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.
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…ir outer shell x x x Cl x x x x 1 o o o o Cl o o o so they share the electrons (marked with a hyphen) to attain the stable configuration. this sharing of electrons between two chlorine molecules is called sharing of electrons within chlorine (MORE)
Ionic (electric) attraction forces of (sodium) Na + and (chlorine) Cl - ions. (i.e. of oppositely charged particles)
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.
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…/Can_nitrogen_form_hydrogen_bonds#ixzz213NZPyXh (MORE)
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
This will produce sodium chloride (NaCl), which makes up the bulk of common table salt. This reaction can be dangerous if performed improperly.
All bonds (single to triple) share two electrons , the one electron is from the first and the other is from the second of the two bonded atoms.
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…th more C atoms it becomes (almost) uncountable. (MORE)
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.
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… overall molecule polar. (MORE)
Strontium is an alkaline metal, so it should form the salt SrCl2, which would have an ionic bond.
Chorine bonds to form many molecules such as calcium hypochlorite which is made of calcium oxygen and chlorine.
Polar Covalent Because uranium has an electronegativity of is 1.38 and chlorinehas one of 3.0 the difference is 1.62. 1.62 is a polar covalentbond
Try sodium. You go into your kitchen and get the table salt and you have it.
Ethylene has 4 single bonds (carbon to hydrogen) and 1 double bond (carbon to carbon).
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 …the structure has three single bonds, the formal charge is still better and formal charge is more important than complete octets. (MORE)
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.
The diatomic bonding of chlorine is covalent as the electronegativities of both chlorine atoms are exactly the same.
Covalent bond between hydrogen and chlorine as the electronegativity difference between the two atoms is below 1.7
Sodium and chlorine react together to fom sodium chloride (common salt) which is an ionic compund with an ionic formula of Na + Cl -
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.
Chlorine has 7 valence electrons and needs one more electron to form octet. Hence each chlorine will form only one covalent bond and not two bonds (or double bond).
Only one bond, as both Hydrogen and Chlorine have one electron in valence shell, so they can have one bond by pairing the electron of last shell to form hydrogen chloride HCL.
"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…le bond. I'm not going to list them all; I'm going to ask you to reformulate the question so that I don't have to read your mind to find out what it is you want to know.. For example:. "What effects does a double bond have on the physical properties of a fatty acid?" See, that's a question that I could actually give an intelligent answer to. Another would be "How does the rate of (a particular type of reaction; be specific) change if the reaction site of the molecule involved has a double bond instead of a single bond?". (MORE)
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… often a type of salt, including the most familiar type, table salt, also known as sodium chloride (NaCl). Pesticides such as DDT are organic molecules which contain chlorine. The extremely dangerous herbicide, dioxin, is a compound of chlorine and oxygen. It is one of the most toxic substances known. So, lots of different compounds can be made with chlorine. (MORE)
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.
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.
