Covalent Bonding

View mindmap
  • Covalent Bonding
    • Simple Molecules
      • Hydrogen, Oxygen, Methane, Chlorine, Nitrogen, Water and hydrogen chloride
      • Held by weak intermolecular forces. Very strong covalent bonds
      • Very low melting and boiling points. Liquids or gases at room temp
      • Don't conduct
    • Covalent Bonding Diagrams
      • Dot and cross show the bonding in overlapping orbits. Don't show relative size of atom or how the atoms are arranged in space
      • Displayed formula. Shows covalent bond as single lines. Way of showing how atoms are connecting in large molecules.  Doesn't show the 3D structures of the molecule
      • 3D model. Shows covalent bond and arrangement in space.Can we confusing
