Questions about the various chemical bonds elements make in compounds.
No. There is a single covalent bond between the two atoms of achlorine molecule.
The ionic charges of group 1 and 2 metals are +1 and +2respectively. Group 15 & 16 the simple mono-atomic ions are -3and -2. Group 17 ions are -1. This can be explained by thefollowing elemnts in groups 1 and 2 lose 1 or 2electrons respectively to achieve a noble gas configuration whereasgroups 15...
Generally the electrons are transfered from the metal elements tothe nonmetalic elements so that both form stable electronconfigurations. For example, in sodium chloride one sodium atomloses an electron so that it has the stable electron configurationof Neon and chlorine gains one electron so that...
An octet electron arrangement is where an atom has 8 valence electrons. It's very stable and unreactive. Some metal atoms tend to donate its electrons and the electrons accepted by non-metal atom. This is called ionic bonding. Some non-metal electron share electron among themselves to achieve...
Marble CaCO 3 can not be melted it becomes decomposed on heating, in to CaO and CO 2 .
marble is a form of calcium carbonate and contains imprities thatgive it its aesthetcally pleasing appearance. In nature marble isformed by the melting of sedimentary calcium carbonate under highpressure and high temperature conditions. Melting calcium carbonateis very difficult under normal...
They differ in their structure and properties. Covalent bonds consist of pairs of electrons shared by twoatoms, and bind the atoms in a fixed orientation. Relatively highenergies are required to break them (50 - 200 kcal/mol). Whethertwo atoms can form a covalent bond depends upon their...
Ionic compounds intra molecular forces deal with charges which dictates their attractions. Example Na+ and Cl- balance out to form NaCl ( include states in a real equation). While their inter molecular forces, which are the forces between molecules causes them to be set up in a crystal lattice...
I'm not sure why there would be a biography on an ionic bond but,ionic bonds are when atoms bond by transferring electrons.
Do you mean that there is a double bond between each carbon? Itwould look like this: H3C=C=CH3 Since it is a straight line, the bond angles would be 180 degreesfrom C to C.
Generally speaking, "bond breaking" is endothermic and "bondmaking" is exothermic. When an ionic bond happens, that's usually abond between two monatomic ions, and it's being formed. Since nobond is breaking, you have an overall exothermic process.
Highly electronegative and highly electropositive elements, e.g.Fluorine, Clorine, Oxygen, or Nitrogen and Sodium, Potassium,Rubidium, Cesium or Barium.
An aqueous solution is one where water is the solvent. The nature of the solute is not relevant.
There are several weak bonds. There hydrogen bonds, ionic bonds, and van der Waals interactions.
To illustrate I will use the example of the oxidation of Cu^+ toCu^2+ with permanganate. Write each half equation out (if they have not been provided foryou). Oxygen atoms require the addition of 2 H^+ ions each, toproduce water. You need to know what each species is being oxidisedor reduced to in...
Isopropyl solution (aka, rubbing alcohol) is not an ionic solution. Isopropanol is a covalent molecule made of non-metals: carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen (C 3 H 8 O).
Most oils are non-polar, so usually, the primary intermolecularforce between their molecules are London dispersion forces, causedby the random motion of electrons forming temporary dipole momentsacross the length of the molecule.
Non-metals can bond together covalently, and there are millions ofpossibilities. A common one is hydrogen and oxygen bonding togetherto form water, or carbon and oxygen bonding together to form carbondioxide.
Diatomic nitrogen features a triple covalent bond between the twonitrogen atoms.
Because of the significant electronegativity difference betweensodium and chlorine, that bond is considered ionic in character.Metal to non-metal combinations are considered ionic compounds.Covalent bonds generally form between non-metals.
because the c**p inside sucks bulls**t ok
The rules of base pairing (or nucleotide pairing) are: A with T: the purine adenine (A) always pairs with the pyrimidinethymine (T) and has 2 hydrogen bonds joining them together. C with G: the pyrimidine cytosine (C) always pairs with the purineguanine (G) and has 3 hydrogen bonds joining them...
An ionic bond, most definitely, Cupric sulfide or copper sulfide;the ratio of the ions and their oxidation state vary. A more commoncompound might be copper sulfate Cu2(SO4), which is the copper saltof sulphuric acid and it can be formed by reacting metallic copperwith sulphuric acid.
Sulfur Oxide (SO) is a covalent (molecular) bond. This is due to the fact that neither element is a metal Ion. Ionic bonds need at least one metallic and one nonmetallic atom whose charges as ions balance out. Normally an ionic bond is formed from group 1 or 2 metals (Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium,...
Chemical bonds are what keep the atoms in a molecule together,without them you won't exist, the tables and chairs and anythingvisible would no exist. No compounds would exist but because of theway atoms are held together these bonds exist. It is impossible forthem not to make bonds with their...
The greater the intermolecular the force, the greater the energyrequired to break up those bonds between the molecules.
Lye is sodium hydroxide, NaOH. That's a sodium cation ionicallybonded to the hydroxide anion. However, within the hydroxide anion,the oxygen and hydrogen are covalently bonded.
it ha double bonds on it
when there is reaction among two elements their attractions helpsin forming the bond
Ionic hydrides are formed by the reaction of hydrogen gas with the most electropositive metals. (group 1 and 2 excluding Be and Mg) The reaction involves the forming of a crystal lattice (solid). Covalent hydrides are formed by weakly electropositive metals and are primarily gasses at room...
The reaction is between Mg and O 2 . 2Mg+O 2 ->2MgO
This sounds like a question from an experiment you've done inbiology class, If so look for the sample which gave the highestamount of brick red precipitate (the one that looked the most red).
A chemical reaction is a process that rearranges the atoms of one or more substances to produce new substances
yes both the carbon and oxygen are non metal atoms but beside thiscarbodioxide is lethal
polar bonds are non metals bonded to non metals and non polar covalent bonds are bonds sharing electrons.....
Electrostatic force of attraction between oppositely charged ions.
salicylic acid react with NaHCO3 and evolvoes CO2 which is anindication of acid.
have a numerical charge that is found by subtracting 8 from the group number
It's not that only alum makes big crystals.. There are so many compounds that can make big crystals. Even Sodium Hydroxide makes very good and big crystals. For crystals you need a uniform arrangement of atoms in space. For big crystals all you need is patience. The slower is the crystallization...
weak forces. also known as the cuolombic forces
No, Covalent bonds are when valence electrons are shared between atoms in a compound whereas Ionic is a much stronger bond because the electrons are transferred from one atom to another creating ions which bond to each other
1 calcium and 2 chlorine
In water H binds with 2O H has the smaller nucleus and thereforehas less ability to attract the electrons in the covalent bond andtherefor the H becomes slightly positive [denoted as delta+] andthe O becomes slightly negative [denoted as delta-]. . There will be electronegativity where any two...
Copper chloride is an ionic compound.
yes O 2 they share equally
It is covalent as there is not enough of a difference in electronegativity for the fluorine to completely pull the electrons away from hydrogen.
It creates sulfur dioxide or 'SO2'
If the electronegativities of the two atoms in the bond are exactly equal or very close to equal, then the bond is non-polar covalent . This is always the case if the two atoms bonded are identical to each other, but sometimes two atoms have very similar electronegativities to each other, resulting...
Hypo fluorite O-F is not possible because the electronegativity of fluorine is higher than oxygen and oxygen with fluorine should be positive , if oxygen is positive then hydrogen or any other positive ion can not attached to oxygen so hypfluorite is not possible.
Hydrogen is produced when a metal reacts with an acid.
ionic bond covalent bond metallic bond coordinate bond
the electrons are shared equally between two of the same nonmetals. the electrons spend equal time over both atoms.
Basically there are two types of bonds Ionic bond and Covalent bond, but their sub classes as Coordinate covalent bond, hydrogen bond and Vander wall's bonds also present in different compounds.
Each neutral hydrogen atom should form one bond. It's atomic number is one, and so, it's nucleus has one proton. Therefore, a neutral H atom will have one electron (e-) to balance the 1+ charge.
In regards to a non-polar molecule's attraction force, you could think of electronegativity, or the tendency for atoms to draw electrons toward themselves. Electronegativity generally increases as you go from the left to right and from down to up the periodic table. Nonmetals are more...
Non-metals do not participate in metallic bonding. As the name implies, this type of bonding only occurs between metal atoms.
Law of conservation of mass is satisfied whenbalancing chemical equations. By the way, the conservation of (the kind and number of) elements and charge is also satisfied.
An ionic compound generally forms from a metal and a nonmetal. The nonmetal oxidizes the metal, forming a metal cation and a nonmetal anion. They ions are held together by the electrical attraction. Ions often bond in latticed structures to form crystals.
well C is carbon, carbon is a nonmetal H is hydrogen and it's also a nonmetal when you have two nonmetal it is a COVALENT compound when you have a metal and a nonmetal it is IONIC compound example: NaAr sodium and argon one is a metal and on is a nonmetal
Solid ionic compounds are all combinations of a metal with a non-metal, and each component is an ion. The metal will give 1 or more electrons to the non-metal atom or molecule, making the metal positively charged and the non-metal negatively charged. The difference in the electrical charges attracts...
A substance which vibrates at a cyclical rate of -9.8m/s^2
Its very important in making a double helix (DNA)
Yes, this is called antiparallel. CGTACC GCATGG Like that.
CaCl is an ionic compound. Calcium is a metal, and chlorine is a non-metal. When combined, a metal and a non-metal form an ionic compound.
No, it is covalent
Carbon is in the column marked 4A, and it is in the second row (or, period). So, its 1s electron orbital is full, its 2s orbital is full, and it's 2p orbital only has 2, so it can still hold 4 electrons; therefore, carbon usually has four bonds.
A covalent bond occurs when two Klingons get it on. An ionic bond occurs when a Cardassian and a Floopite hit the hay.
Oxygen will bond with all elements except Helium and Neon. It isn't crazy about the rest of the Noble Gases: Argon, Kryton, Xenon, and Radon but can be made to bond with them at high temperatures and pressure.
Potassium gives a +1 Charge, Fluorine gives a -1 Charge. Theyneutralize eachother, so the end result is KF.
Balancing a chemical equation can often require a whole-numbercoefficient placed in front of a chemical formula. This upholds theLaw of Conservation of Matter, which says that matter cannot becreated or destroyed. These coefficients must be in the lowestpossible ratio.
HCI would contain two (2) covalent bonds, one between hydrogen and carbon, the other between iodine and carbon, leaving a lone pair on carbon. It is unlikely such a compound would last for very long that way, though.
Metallic bonds are similar to highly delocalised bonds found in giant covalent molecules, such as those found in graphite. Other substances with a metallic appearance such as galena lead sulfide, PbS and iron pyrites, FeS 2 although usually considered at high school level to be ionic are in fact...
it is called the sodium monooxide but it is unstable as oxygen has-2 valency and sodium has +1
The ancient Greeks and Celts had mermaid myths.
