C4 - The Periodic Table and Covalent Bonding

HideShow resource information
What is covalent bonding?
Non-metals sharing electron pairs between atoms
1 of 7
What is an intermolecular force?
Forces of attraction or repulsion which act between neighboring particles
2 of 7
What has low melting points?
Weak intermolecular forces in substances that have a simple molecular structure. Molecules are easy to break apart.
3 of 7
Why don't carbon dioxide and water conduct electricity?
There are no free electrons
4 of 7
What does the group number mean?
The same number of electrons in the outer shell
5 of 7
What does the period mean?
The number of electrons in outer shells
6 of 7
What is the development of the periodic table?
Mendeleev predicted that new elements would be found. Later investigations confirmed his idea on periodicity and the discovery of missing elements.
