Ch 13: Holt Physical Science Chapter 13: Chemical Bonding

About This Chapter

The Chemical Bonding chapter of this Holt Physical Science Textbook Companion Course helps students learn essential physical science lessons of chemical bonding. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Chemical Bonding textbook chapter.

How it works:

  • Identify the lessons in Holt Physical Science Chemical Bonding chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons within this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the chemical bonding topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn about:

  • The octet rule and Lewis structures of atoms
  • Valence electrons and energy levels of atoms of elements
  • Ionic and covalent chemical bonds
  • Predicting formation, formulas and charges of ions
  • Metallic bonding and the conductivity of metals

7 Lessons in Chapter 13: Holt Physical Science Chapter 13: Chemical Bonding
The Octet Rule and Lewis Structures of Atoms

1. The Octet Rule and Lewis Structures of Atoms

Learn the octet rule and how it applies to electron energy levels. Identify valence electrons and learn how to determine them by looking at the periodic table. Also, discover how they pertain to the octet rule. Learn how to draw the Lewis diagram of an atom, and understand how it provides clues to chemical bonding.

Valence Electrons and Energy Levels of Atoms of Elements

2. Valence Electrons and Energy Levels of Atoms of Elements

The periodic table contains a wealth of information. This lesson will explain how to use it to quickly determine the most useful information about the most important electrons. We will be focusing our discussion on valence electrons and energy levels.

Chemical Bonds II: Ionic

3. Chemical Bonds II: Ionic

Did you know that the scientific name for table salt is sodium chloride? Find out how sodium and chlorine atoms come together to form your favorite seasoning.

Ions: Predicting Formation, Charge, and Formulas of Ions

4. Ions: Predicting Formation, Charge, and Formulas of Ions

Learn how ions are formed using the octet rule. Use the periodic table to predict the charge an atom will have when it becomes an ion. Learn whether an ion is a cation or anion and how to write the formula depending on what charge the ion has.

Chemical Bonds I: Covalent

5. Chemical Bonds I: Covalent

Mom always said that sharing is caring. This lesson will explore how electrons affect the chemical reactivity of atoms and specifically the merits of sharing electrons.

Metallic Bonding: The Electron-Sea Model & Why Metals Are Good Electrical Conductors

6. Metallic Bonding: The Electron-Sea Model & Why Metals Are Good Electrical Conductors

Learn why metallic bonding is called the electron sea model. Discover why metals bond the way they do and why they are shiny, malleable and conduct electricity well.

What is a Metallic Bond? - Definition, Properties & Examples

7. What is a Metallic Bond? - Definition, Properties & Examples

The metallic bond is a type of chemical bond that occurs between atoms of metallic elements. It gives metals their unique properties that we don't see in nonmetal substances, as you'll learn in this lesson.
