About This Chapter

In this overview of types of chemical bonding, learn about topics like Lewis structures and lattice energy. You can use these video lessons to complete a homework assignment or supplement class materials.

Types of Chemical Bonding - Chapter Summary

This chapter includes lessons on types of chemical bonding. There are informative discussions about ionic bonds, covalent bonds, and more. After completing the chapter, you should be able to:

  • Understand the octet rule and Lewis structures of atoms
  • Discuss ionic vs. covalent chemical bonds
  • Recognize single, double, and triple bonds of Lewis structures
  • Explain factors influencing the formation of ionic bonds
  • Define lattice energy and discuss trends

We use short and engaging video lessons, which assists you in quickly grasping the information presented. Our expert instructors provide plenty of helpful examples. The video timelines allow you to navigate the video and choose the order of topics based on your preference. Full video transcripts are available for you to review. Each lesson is accompanied by a brief multiple-choice quiz to test your knowledge.

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.

Chemical Bonds: Ionic vs. Covalent

2. 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.

Ionic Bonds: Definitions and Examples

3. Ionic Bonds: Definitions and Examples

Did you know that when atoms stick together to form molecules, they gain and lose electrons, making them negatively or positively charged? In this lesson, you will learn how cations and anions form one type of chemical bond called an ionic bond.

Lewis Structures: Single, Double & Triple Bonds

4. Lewis Structures: Single, Double & Triple Bonds

Review what a Lewis dot diagram is and discover how to draw a Lewis dot structural formula for compounds. Learn how to represent single, double and triple bonds with lines instead of dots. Also, learn how compounds arrange themselves.

Factors Influencing the Formation of Ionic Bonds

5. Factors Influencing the Formation of Ionic Bonds

Ionic bonding is a chemical bond between a positive ion and negative ion. Ionization energy, electronegativity, and lattice energy are the factors that influence the formation of ionic bonds of elements. Learn about these factors in this lesson.

Lattice Energy: Definition, Trends & Equation

6. Lattice Energy: Definition, Trends & Equation

This lesson discusses the concept of lattice energy in ionic solids. We'll look at what factors affect the strength of bonds in ionic solids. We'll also go over how to use the Born-Haber Cycle to calculate lattice energy.
