2General Bonds are formed when two atoms share or transfer electrons. As the atoms move closer together, the electrons from each atom are attracted to the protons of another atom.
3Bonds Two main types: covalent bonds and ionic bonds Covalent bonds- electrons are shared equally or somewhat shared.Ionic bonds- electrons are completely transferred from one atom to another.This is what causes cations and anions in ionic compounds
4ElectronegativityHow do you determine what bond is formed between two atoms?Look at the electronegativity values of the atoms.Electronegativity-the ability of an atom to attract electrons in a chemical bond.
5ElectronegativityAtoms with higher electronegativity attract electrons more strongly.If atoms form a bond, the electrons are held close.If the electronegativity difference is large enough, electrons can be pulled away from the other atom.
6Electronegativity Each atom has an electronegativity value. Elements that have low values lose electrons easily.Elements that have high values gain electrons easily.
7Bond TypesLittle or no difference in electronegativity allows for a covalent bond.Ex: H2, both atoms have an electronegativity of 2.1= 0 (no difference in electronegativity)
8Bond TypeWhen the electronegativity difference is large, electrons are not shared equally.The bond is ionic.
