About This Chapter
Chemical Bonds - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives
Our experienced instructors use this chapter to introduce you to the different types of chemical bonds and their functions. You'll explore covalent and polar covalent bonds through short lessons that feature entertaining graphics and illustrations to make learning fun. Learn about ionic and hydrogen bonds by watching videos then take the self-assessment quizzes that follow the lessons to make sure you have a solid grasp of the material. These lessons can help you:
- Understand the importance of sharing electrons
- Differentiate between polar and nonpolar covalent bonds
- Describe intermolecular interactions
- Discover how ionic bonds are formed
|Chemical Bonds I: Covalent||Determine how chemical bonds link atoms and what makes covalent bonds strong.|
|Chemical Bonds II: Ionic||Highlight the importance of electronegativity in determining how atoms behave and see characteristics of ionic bonds.|
|Chemical Bonds III: Polar Covalent||Observe how polar covalent bonds are formed and how they differ from ionic and covalent bonds.|
|Chemical Bonds IV: Hydrogen||Explore why hydrogen bonding is important and the different ways hydrogen bonds can be formed.|
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Chemical Bonds III: Polar Covalent
Are you confused about how you can tell what kind of bond two atoms will form? This lesson will help you understand the difference between polar and nonpolar covalent bonds as well as how to predict how two atoms will interact.
4. Chemical Bonds IV: Hydrogen
This lesson defines and discusses important concepts behind hydrogen bonding. You'll learn when and why these bonds occur and which atoms are often involved.
