Unformatted text preview: The reason for this is because Cl-Cl has the least electro negativity difference of 0.0, then the Cl-O with a difference of 0.5 and finally S-o is the most polar with an electro negativity difference of 1.0. 35) a) An octet structure is when an atom has is valence shell or outer orbital full of electrons. An octet structure is stable like the noble gases. b) When the outer shell is full of electrons it doesn’t allow any reactions to take place because there is no more room for extra electrons. It needs more energy to break this stable structure to add or remove electrons. 36) Co-ordinate covalent bonding occurs when an atom contains an unshared pair of electrons and another atom has an empty orbital for those pair of electrons to occupy....
