Chemistry C2: Ionic Bonding

HideShow resource information
What is are ions?
An ion particle is a particle that is charged, due to the loss or gain of electrons
1 of 10
What is ionic bonding?
Ionic bonding is where two atoms transfer electrons and therefore gain/lose electrons and become oppositly charged ( + - ) and attrated to each other
2 of 10
If an atom has one/two electrons on it's outer shell, will it try to get rid of the electron or keep it?
It will try to get rid of the electron/s so it is left with a full outer shell
3 of 10
What does an atom with a nearly full outher shell do?
It takes electron(s) from another atom (such as one that wants to lose an electron or two) and then therefore achieve a full outer shell
4 of 10
What type of structure are ionic compounds?
They have a regular lattice structure
5 of 10
Do ionic compounds have high boiling points or low ones?
High boiling points because the bonds are so strong
6 of 10
What groups are most likely to form ions?
Groups 1 & 2 and 6 &7 are the most likely to form ions
7 of 10
Ions do not have the same structure of a noble gas. True of false?
False! Ions have the electronic structure of a noble gas
8 of 10
What is ionic bonding between?
Metal and non-metal atoms
9 of 10
What is the overall charge of an ionic compound?
Zero. All the positive charges are balencedt out by the negative ones and vise-versa
