HeliumatomValence ElectronsValence electrons are the electrons in the highest occupied energy level of the atom.

Valence electrons are the only electrons generally involved in bond formation. Electron Configuration of Sodium1s2 2s2 2p6 3s1

Which is the valence electron for Na?

Answer: 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s1

Na , 11 e

Na + , 10eelectron shellsAtomic number = number of Electrons

Electrons vary in the amount of energy they possess, and they occur at certain energy levels or electron shells.

Electron shells determine how an atom behaves when it encounters other atoms

Electrons are placed in shells according to rules:The 1st shell can hold up to two electrons, and each shell thereafter can hold up to 8 electrons.

Octet Rule = atoms tend to gain, lose or share electrons so as to have 8 electronsC would like to N would like toO would like toGain 4 electronsGain 3 electronsGain 2 electronsWhy are electrons important?Elements have different electron configurationsdifferent electron configurations mean different levels of bonding

IONIC BONDbond formed between two ions by the transfer of electrons

Formation of Ions from Metals

Ionic compounds result when metals react with nonmetals Metals lose electrons to match the number of valence electrons of their nearest noble gasPositive ions form when the number of electrons are less than the number of protons Group 1 metals ion 1+Group 2 metals ion 2+Group 13 metals ion 3+When Na, (Z= 11) loses its valence electron, what element does its configuration look like ?NeonPotassium BerylliumSodiumCheck your Neighbor 18C. discover the property called inertia.

When the valence shell is full, the atom is stable, less likely to react.

Ionic Bonds: One Big Greedy Thief Dog!

1). Ionic bond electron from Na is transferred to Cl, this causes a charge imbalance in each atom. The Na becomes (Na+) and the Cl becomes (Cl-), charged particles or ions.

Example:Which of the following compounds are ionic?


Some Common Ions

COVALENT BONDbond formed by the sharing of electrons

Covalent BondBetween nonmetallic elements of similar electronegativity.Formed by sharing electron pairsStable non-ionizing particles, they are not conductors at any stateExamples; O2, CO2, C2H6, H2O, SiC

Covalent BondsBonds in all the polyatomic ions and diatomics are all covalent bonds

when electrons are shared equallyNONPOLAR COVALENT BONDSH2 or Cl22. Covalent bonds- Two atoms share one or more pairs of outer-shell electrons.

Oxygen Atom

Oxygen AtomOxygen Molecule (O2)

when electrons are shared but shared unequallyPOLAR COVALENT BONDSH2OPolar Covalent Bonds: Unevenly matched, but willing to share.

- water is a polar molecule because oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen, and therefore electrons are pulled closer to oxygen.

POLAR COVALENT BOND the electrons shared by the atoms spend a greater amount of time closer to one particular atomThis creates a partial negative end and a partial positive end

METALLIC BONDbond found in metals; holds metal atoms together very stronglyMetallic BondFormed between atoms of metallic elementsElectron cloud around atoms Good conductors at all states, lustrous, very high melting pointsExamples; Na, Fe, Al, Au, Co

Metallic Bonds: Mellow dogs with plenty of bones to go around.

Ionic Bond, A Sea of Electrons

Metals Form Alloys

Metals do not combine with metals. They form Alloys which is a solution of a metal in a metal.Examples are steel, brass, bronze and pewter.Chemical FormulaA representation of the kinds and number of atoms in a substance.Formula UnitA chemical formula that shows the lowest whole number ratio of the atoms (ions) in an ionic compound.

Example: KCl, Mg Cl2The formula unit is used because ionic compounds have a lattice arrangement of ions. Ex: NaClWhich ball represents the Na?
