CHAPTER 9Chemical Bonding ILewis Theory1IntroductionChemical Bonds: Attractive forces that hold ttthidatoms together in compounds. 2Chemical BondsThree basic types of bonds:Ionic•Electrostatic attraction between ionsCovalent•Sharing of electronsMetallic3•Metal atoms bonded to each other due to electron poolingLewis Dot Formulas of AtomsThe electrons involved in bonding areThe electrons involved in bonding are usually those in the outermost shell. They are called valence electrons.Lewis dot formulas are a convenient bookkeeping method for tracking valence 4electrons.
