About This Chapter
Georgia Milestones Physical Science EOC: Chemical Reactions & Bonding- Chapter Summary
The Georgia Milestones Physical Science EOC Exam will assess your understanding of numerous subjects within the physical sciences. One of these subjects is the process of chemical reactions and bonding, which you can learn about by watching each of these video lessons in this chapter. The lessons will teach you about all of the information on this subject you'll need for the exam, such as:
- Chemical formulas
- Chemical equations
- Chemical reactions
- The definition and characteristics of compounds
- Covalent compounds
- Ionic compounds
- Naming ionic compounds
The chapter's practice quizzes will be helpful in making sure you have understood all of these topics. You can contact our instructors if you have questions about the content. Overall, our study resources will give you a huge leg up when preparing for the Georgia Milestones Exam!
1. What is a Chemical Formula? - Definition, Types & Examples
Chemical formulas provide a lot of information about chemical substances, such as how many and what atoms they are made of, as well as the way the atoms are arranged. In this lesson, we'll discuss the different types of chemical formulas.
2. What is a Chemical Equation? - Definition & Examples
In this lesson, you will learn how chemical equations are used to represent chemical reactions. You will learn that there are many pieces of information provided in a chemical equation, and you will gain an understanding of how to interpret chemical equations.
3. What Is a Chemical Reaction? - Definition & Effects
Sometimes, molecules look different on the outside, but only their physical appearance has changed. Other times, through chemical reactions, molecules change both inside and out, meaning both their physical and chemical properties have changed.
4. Decomposition and Synthesis Reactions
Learn how to write, identify and predict the products of simple synthesis and decomposition reactions. This includes the composition of reactions with oxygen, of two metals, and of metals with nonmetals, as well as the decomposition of metal carbonates, metal chlorates and metal hydroxides.
5. Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations
In this lesson, you'll learn how to balance a chemical reaction equation using the conservation of matter law. You'll also learn how to write both word and formula equations, what the subscripts after a letter mean and what the numbers in front of compounds mean.
6. 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.
7. Covalent Compounds: Properties, Naming & Formation
Learn about covalent bonds, how covalent compounds are formed and the properties inherent to covalent compounds, such as low melting and boiling points, in this lesson. Also, learn what rules to follow to name simple covalent compounds.
8. Ionic Compounds: Formation, Lattice Energy and Properties
In this lesson, you'll learn about ionic compounds and how they form. Additionally, you'll learn the properties of ionic compounds, such as their high melting and boiling points, their ability to conduct electricity, and the fact that they form crystals.
9. Naming Ionic Compounds: Simple Binary, Transition Metal & Polyatomic Ion Compounds
An important part of dealing with chemical compounds is knowing how to refer to them. Learn how to name all ionic compounds, including simple binary compounds, compounds containing transition metals and compounds containing polyatomic ions.
10. Writing Ionic Compound Formulas: Binary & Polyatomic Compounds
In this lesson, you will learn how to write the chemical formulas for both binary ionic compounds and polyatomic ionic compounds when you are given only the name of the compound. You will see that it is actually quite simple when you learn the steps described in this lesson.
