Intro to Chemical Bonding pt 3

  • What is a chemical bond?
  • Why do most atoms form chemical bonds?
  • Practice: What type of bond would you expect in the following?
    • Sodium-Sodium
    • Sodum-Fluorine
    •  Iron-Fluorine
    • Phosphorous-Fluorine
2)  Q What are the properties associated with Ionic Bonds?
A

Use the Bonding Comparison Chart to summarize your answers.

Ionic Bonding properties

  • What types of atoms typically form ionic bonds?
  • How are ionic bonds formed and what type of structure do they create?
  • What are the typical properties of ionic substances?
    • Include the following: physical state, melting point, solubility in water, electrical conductivity, and any other properties you'd like to include.
  • Insert an image into the chart that you feel best represents ionic bonding. Resize the image to make it small enough to fit.
3)  Q What are the properties of compounds bonded covalently?
A

Use the Bonding Comparison Chart to summarize your answers to questions 1-4.

Covalent Bonding Properties pt 1

Covlaent Bonding Properties pt 2 

  • What types of atoms typically form covalent bonds?
  • How are covalent bonds formed and what type of structure do they create?
  • What are the typical properties of covalent substances ?
    • Include the following: physical state, melting point, solubility in water, electrical conductivity, and any other properties you'd like to include.
  • Insert an image into the chart that you feel best represents covalent bonding. Resize the image to make it small enough to fit. First, read about the difference between polar and nonpolar covalent bonds.

Overview of Chemical Bonding

You have had the opportunity to explore the key aspects of ionic, covalent, and metallic bonding.   Now, let's put your newfound knowledge to use!

  1. Choose one of the following products to demonstrate what you have learned.

  • STORY - Choose one type of bonding and write "A Day in the Life of an Atom" story describing what it's like to be an atom that forms your chosen bond type.  The story should incorporate at least 5 properties.

  • COMIC STRIP - Choose one type of bonding and write a comic strip with 3+ frames. The comic should incorporate at least 3 properties.

  • SINGLE-FRAME CARTOON - Draw a single-frame cartoon for each type of bonding.  Each cartoon should incorporate at least one key property.
