Yes. They would just have different molecular formulas
A ratio of atoms in the compound.
Empirical formulas represent the simplest component of a molecule.
Yes, it is possible.All isomers have the same empirical formula.
Different covalent compounds can have not only the same empirical formula but also the same molecular formula. For example, C2H6O can be either dimethyl ether or ethanol. This can occur because of differences in bonding patterns. In dimethyl ether, the oxygen atom is bonded directly to both carbon atoms, but in ethanol the oxygen atom is bonded to oxygen and hydrogen instead.
Isomerism. The structures of the molecules are different even when the numbers of atoms are the same. Organic molecules are the most common examples of this. Compare n-butane and iso-butane same formula different structures. See link
Yes, it is possible; many organic compounds have isomers (molecules with the same chemical formula but with different structure). Isomerism is a frequent phenomenon.
Because in ionic compounds there is only one combination of atoms. In covalent compounds there are many possible combinations. therefore we need two naming systems for compounds
There are NO specific uses possible only by being 'covalent'. A compound actually can NOT be named 'COVALENT'. Only a special type of bonding is called 'covalent'.
Yes, it is true. Salts are ionic compounds.
The concept of empirical formulas apply to ionic compounds. You write the action first, the anion second, and use the minimal amount of atoms possible to make a neutral compound. A molecular formula would be the formula without necessarily the minimum amount of atoms.
The smallest possible unit of a covalent compound is a molecule.
Is covalent bond 100% covalent yes or no
Atoms are the smallest particle possible of an element. Compounds are made up of molecules which have more than one elemental type of atom; compounds are chemical mixtures of different elements.
1a. A single covalent bond between two carbon atoms is quite strong. 1b. Carbon compounds are not extremely reactive under ordinary conditions. 1c. A wide variety of carbon compounds is possible since carbon can form up to four single covalent bonds.
Carbon has four valence electrons in its outermost orbit which indicate it need four further electrons to complete its valence according to octect rule. It is also not possible for Carbon to remove all of its four valence electrons for the same cause of obeying octect rule. Hence the only option left for carbon is make covalent bonds with another carbon or any other element whose electrons are available for making a covalent bond. That's why most of the compounds of carbon are covalent.
Yes, it is possible for an empirical formula to be the same as the molecular formula. For example, Lactic acid's molecular formula is C3H6O3, which would make its empirical formula CH2O.
Because of the charges of particles and different atomic weights of both elements and compounds.
It is not possible for the polar covalent compound to have a lower melting point than the non-polar covalent compound because they have ionic bonds.
Greatly reduced since only one covalent bond per carbon molecule would be possible. p.s. mrs. greenawalt knows you're looking here ;)
As a general rule is not possible.
+2 and +3 in its compounds.
Elements join together to make molecules and compounds by forming chemical bonds. The two main types of chemical bonds are ionic bonds and covalent bonds. Ionic bonds result when one element donates its electrons and the other element accepts those electrons. Covalent bonds result the two elements share their electrons.
This is possible in covalent bonding.
Yes, it is possible.
A possible compound would be silicon dioxide with giant covalent structure and strong covalent bonds.
