Chemistry 2A - Structure and Bonding

HideShow resource information
Describe the process of ionic bonding.
When atoms lose or gain electrons to form charged particles (ions) which are then strongly attracted to one another (opposite charges attract)

What is covalent bonding?
Where atoms share electrons with each other so that they've got full outer shells
3 of 5
What are the two types of covalent substance? Give three examples of each.
Simple Molecular Substances - Chlorine, oxygen and water Giant Covalent Structures - Diamond, graphite and silicon dioxide
4 of 5
List three properties of metals and explain how metallic bonding causes these properties.
They consist of a giant structure. They have a 'sea of delocalised electrons'. The free electrons allow the layers of atoms to slide over each other.
