Atoms combine by sharing electrons to form molecules. Molecules are a group of atoms held together by sharing one or more pairs of electrons. Examples include carbon dioxide and water.
Covalent Compounds are formed from non-metals only. They do not conduct electricity. May be a solid, liquid, or gas at room temperature.
Examples of Covalent Compounds: Table sugar C 12 H 22 O 11 Carbon Dioxide CO 2 Water H 2 O Methane CH 4
Atoms gain or lose electrons to form ions. All the positive ions attract all the negative ions everywhere in the same crystal. Formed from metals and non-metals.
All are solid at room temperature. High melting and boiling points. Will conduct electricity when melted or dissolved in water. Are also called “salts”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqjc CvzWwww&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqjc CvzWwww&feature=related

Every compound has a... 1.Name: indicates the elements present in the compound 2.Formula: indicates the symbols and ratio of each element present in the compound.

The metal ion's name does not change The non-metal's name ends in ide. Examples: AlCl 3 = aluminum chloride Na 2 S = sodium sulfide K 2 O = potassium oxide MgH 2 = magnesium hydride
In order to be effective in using prefixes to name compounds containing two non-metals, these prefixes must be committed to memory: mono- 1 hepta- 7 di- 2 octa- 8 tri- 3 nona- 9 tetra- 4 deca- 10 penta- 5 hexa- 6See pg 83
