Due Date: 2/23/07 Assignment #4 Chemistry 106 Chapter 5: Applying Your Knowledge 6) The octet rule says that in forming bonds, main group elements gain, lose, or share electrons to achieve a stable electron configuration with eight valence electrons. 8. No. Since calcium only has two electrons in its valence shell, it cannot have a charge of +3 naturally. 16. An ionic bond is based on the attraction between positive and negative ions. In covalent bonds, electrons are shared. 18.

Unformatted text preview: octet rule. This is because the octet rule requires the elements in the compound to each have a valence of eight after the bond is formed. Because of this, there is no way that a compound with an odd number of valence electrons can conform to the octet rule. 32. (c) gas 34. (a) liquid 40. (a), (b), (f), and (g) display hydrogen bonding because they have a hydrogen atom bonded to a highly electronegative atom (O, N, F) and the lone pair on an electronegative atom in another or the same molecule.
