Unit 2: All Biology is Chemistry Lesson 2: Compounds and Chemical Bonding
Drill – October 7, 2011 Create the proper MLA citation for the following: A student visits a website that was created on September 6, 2005 by George Jones. Mr. Jones created a web article entitled All About Carbon on the American Chemical Society website. The student accessed this site on October 11, 2010.
Drill – October 19, 2011 Read the Making Bonds article. Answer the following question: What makes atoms bond?
Objectives At the conclusion of this lesson students will be able to: 1.Define compound.compound 2.Explain why elements combine to form compounds. 3.Define the term chemical bond.chemical bond 4.Compare and contrast ionic and covalent bonds.ioniccovalent bonds 5.Understand why ionic and covalent bonds form. 6.Predict which type of bond will likely form when given two or more elements.
Compounds Most elements do not exist alone in nature. Atoms combine to form compounds. –Compounds are substances containing atoms of two or more elements that are chemically combined in fixed proportionsCompounds Obj. 1 & 2 Obj. 1 & 2Compound: from the Latin componere, meaning “to put together”
When Two Atoms Meet The individual subatomic particles either attract or repel one another. –Electron-electron repulsions –Nucleus-nucleus repulsions –Electron-nucleus attractions
When Two Atoms Meet Repulsions increase the kinetic energy of particles – they are trying to get away from one another. Attractions decrease the kinetic energy of particles – they try to come together. Atoms prefer arrangements that minimize the kinetic energy of their particles.
Why Combine? Compounds form because atoms prefer to have a valence energy level that is filled with electrons. A partially-filled outermost energy level usually achieves minimization of energy among atomic particles making the atom more stable electrically. Does this carbon atom have a filled valence energy level? = neutron = proton = electron Obj. 1 & 2 Obj. 1 & 2 ( This is a generalization and is not entirely true.)
Achieving ‘Stability’ Atoms can become stable by attaining at least one of the following: –They fill their valence energy level with the maximum amount of electrons that it will hold. OR –They fill their valence energy level with eight electrons. The Octet Rule
Driving Forces The Laws of Thermodynamics When atoms come into proximity to one another, their electrons repel one another and no bond forms unless… The atoms are moving with sufficient speed (i.e. kinetic energy). The first law of thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed but it can be converted from one form into another.
Bond Energy Bonds form when the kinetic energy of colliding atoms overcomes their initial repulsion and any resulting forces of attraction are greater than any remaining forces of repulsion.
All That Energy! This kinetic energy can… –be lost as heat or light, or –be stored in a chemical bond. Chemical bondsChemical bonds are the attractions that hold two or more atoms together to form a compound. Bonds form energy is stored Bonds broken energy is released Obj. 3 Obj. 3
The Sodium-Chlorine Ionic Bond Sodium 11 p 12 n Chlorine 17 p 18 n Sodium atom (atomic #: 11)Chlorine atom (atomic #: 17) How many electrons does each atom have now? How does this affect the total charge of each atom?
The Sodium-Chlorine Ionic Bond Sodium 11 p 12 n Chlorine 17 p 18 n These atoms are no longer electrically neutral. Protons+11 Electrons-10 Charge+1 Protons+17 Electrons-18 Charge-1 These atoms are stable, but because of their opposite charges they now attract one another. How many protons does sodium (Na) have? How many electrons does Na have now? What is the total charge of this atom of sodium?
The Sodium-Chlorine Ionic Bond An atom with an electrical charge is called an ion. chlorine ions As a result of their opposite charges, sodium ions and chlorine ions attract each other. Sodium 11 p 12 n Chlorine 17 p 18 n Sodium ion +1 Chlorine ion An ionic bond is the chemical bond formed between ions with opposite charges.ionic bond Obj. 4 & 5 Obj. 4 & 5 This new substance is a compound called sodium chloride.
Ionic Bonds Reviewed Ionic bonds… involve a __________ of electrons. result when ______ of ___________ charges attract each other. Back to Two Ways to Bond
Drill 24 October 2011 Students should answer the following questions in their notebooks: a.A _________ ________ is an attraction that holds two or more atoms together to form a compound. b. Atoms can become more stable by filling their outermost energy level with ______ electrons. c.An atom with an electrical charge is called an ____________. d.A(n) _______ ________ is the chemical bond formed between ions with opposite charges.
There IS Another Way What happens when an atom has 4, 5, or even 6 valence electrons? Atoms can also share one or more pairs of electrons. –When two atoms share electrons, the shared electrons occupy orbitals around both of the atoms. –The electrons move so quickly that it is difficult to predict which atom they are orbiting at any given time.
Water – A Model of Covalent Bonding Hydrogen 1 p 0 n Oxygen 8p 8n Hydrogen atom (atomic #: 1)Oxygen atom (atomic #: 8) How many valence electrons does each atom have? How many more electrons does each atom need to fill its outermost energy level? Obj. 5 Obj. 5
Water – A Model of Covalent Bonding Hydrogen 1 p 0 n Oxygen 8p 8n Hydrogen 1 p 0 n This is a molecule of water. It can also be referred to by its chemical formula, H 2 O. A shared pair of electrons can be considered to be part of the outermost energy level of both atoms that share them. This is a molecule of water. It can also be referred to by its chemical formula, H 2 O. A shared pair of electrons can be considered to be part of the outermost energy level of both atoms that share them. How might each of these atoms fill its outermost energy level? Hydrogen 1 p 0 n Oxygen 8p 8n If each hydrogen atom shares a pair of blinking electrons with oxygen, how many valence electrons does each atom have?
Covalent Bond Covalent Bond A covalent bond forms when two atoms share one or more pairs of electrons.covalent bond –A molecule is the simplest part of a substance that retains all the properties of that substancemolecule Obj. 2 Obj. 2
Organic Compounds Carbon has an outermost energy level that is partially filled. Its outermost level contains only four electrons. Because of this carbon can form many covalent bonds with other atoms and create a wide variety of compounds. This is why carbon is an essential element for all life. = neutron = proton = electron Compounds that contain one or more atoms of carbon are called organic compounds.organic compounds
Comparing Ionic & Covalent Bonds Ionic bonds Covalent bonds Electrons are transferred Electrons are shared Usually occur when group IA and IIA elements bond with group VIIA elements. Usually occur between nonmetals (i.e. C, H, N, O) 2 nd strongest type of chemical bond Strongest type of chemical bond Examine the following table: Obj. 4 Obj. 4
Guess the Bond! Examine each set of elements below. Which sets will likely bond together using ionic bonds? Which ones will likely bond using covalent bonds? Na & Cl C & H Mg & Cl K & I N & O Si & O H & S Obj. 6 Obj. 6

Glossary – Part 2 kinetic energy kinetic energy – energy of motion moleculemolecule – is the simplest part of a substance that retains all the properties of that substance organic compound organic compound – a compound that contains the element carbon valencevalence – refers to the outermost energy level of an atom or the electrons contained in that outermost energy level
