Week 10: Section B

Molecular Bonding! This week we will build on what we’ve learned about valence electrons in chapters 6 and 7 in order to understand how atoms connect to form molecules.  We will start with ionic bonding  which builds directly out of concepts of ionization and electron affinity from chapter 7.  Then we will master drawing Lewis structures, including learning to draw resonance structures and learning when it is ok to break the octet rule.  By the end of the week we will be able to relate Lewis structures to bond strengths and to enthalpies of reactions.

Homework #9 covers chapter 7. It is due on Mastering Chemistry at midnight on Wednesday.

Learning Objectives Relate electron configurations to periodic trends and observed exceptions to the trends. Write lewis structure for molecules. Use electronegativity to categorize bonding types. Use formal charges to identify the best lewis structure. Identify when resonance structures or exceptions to the octet rule are necessary to define bonding.
