Ellis1 Alana Ellis Professor Queen Kine 200 11 September 2016 Daily Assignment #3 This week in class, we discussed the chemistry of life. Under this topic, we covered bonds; detailing the aspects of intramolecular, which is a bond inside separate molecules, and intermolecular, a bond between different and separate molecules. All atoms, excluding hydrogen, want to have eight valence electrons, meaning the electrons that make up their outermost shell. They can get these eight electrons by either sharing with another atom, or by taking them from another atom. Intramolecular bonds can either be ionic or covalent. Ionic bonding occurs when electronegativities (the ability of an atom to steal electrons) of atoms are very juxtaposed, such as between a metal and a gas. When we see this difference in electronegativity, the one with the higher rate will take an electron from the atom with the lower rate; therefore, one atom gains an

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
