About This Chapter
Chemical Bonding & Simple Chemical Compounds - Chapter Summary
If you would like to improve your understanding of chemistry, it's a good idea to make sure that you specifically study up on chemical bonding and simple chemical compounds. You can do this by going through this online chapter and reviewing each of the video and text lessons included here. These lessons will each teach you abiut a different topic on chemical bonds and compounds.
Our lesson instructors will go over different types of chemical bond and their defining characteristics, breaking these topics down point-by-point in an easy-to-use online format. Each instructor has specific expertise in this subject, so all information contained in these lessons in both accurate and comprehensive. Some of the specific topics you will learn about include:
- Ionic vs. covalent chemical bonds
- The definition and characteristics of compounds
- The rules to follow to correctly name ionic compounds
- The measurement of acids and bases on the pH scale
The questions found in the chapter's practice quizzes and final exam will help you make sure that you have accurately understood these topics once you complete the lessons. The chapter also offers you the function of messaging the lesson instructors, should you want more information on specific topics. You can also use your personal Dashboard to keep track of your learning progress as you go through the chapter.
1. Chemical Bonds: Ionic vs. Covalent
Atoms make up everything on Earth, and chemical bonds are what hold those atoms together. In this lesson, we'll discuss two very important types of chemical bonds: covalent and ionic.
2. What Is a Compound? - Combining Elements with Chemical Bonds
After watching this video, you will be able to explain what a compound is, identify compounds versus regular molecules, and describe the two types of bonding that form compounds. A short quiz will follow.
3. Rules for Naming Ionic Compounds
How do we know what names to call different ionic compounds? In chemistry, there are different types of ionic compounds. In this lesson, we will go over these types and the rules we must follow to name them correctly.
4. Acids and Bases
Have you ever wondered how we measure the acidity of liquids? Check out this lesson to see how acids and bases are measured on a pH scale and how they relate to neutral solutions, such as water.
