 Study Guide:  Chemical Bonding

  Students should be able to...

  • Define: chemical bond, ionic, covalent, metallic, diatomic, polar, nonpolar, VSEPR, dipole-dipole forces, Hydrogen “bonding”, and London dispersion forces

  • Use bonding triangles and electronegativity to determine the type of bond formed between two elements

  • Know which elements are diatomic.  

  • Draw Lewis structures for covalent molecules, including double and triple bonds.  

  • Draw Lewis structures for polyatomic ions

  • Use VSEPR chart to determine molecular geometry. 
    (For additional assistance, an online 3-D lab is available)

  • Use VSEPR chart to write Lewis structures that include bond angles.

  • Identify molecules as polar or nonpolar  

  • Distinguish between intermolecular and intramolecular attractions

  • Understand the expansion of ice due to hydrogen bonding.
