Dhaval Rana Chemistry February 19, 2008 Chapter 6 Section 1 Most atoms are chemically bonded to other atoms. The three major types of chemical bonding are ionic, covalent, and metallic. In general, atoms of metals bond ironically with atoms of non-metals, atoms of metals bond metallically with each other, and atoms of nonmetal bond covalently with each other. Section 2 Atoms in molecules are joined by covalent bonds. In a covalent bond, two atoms share one or more Pair of electrons. The octet rule states that many chemical compounds tend to form bonds so that each atom shares or has eight electrons in its highest occupied

Molecules or ions that cannot be correctly represented by a single Lewis structure are represented by resonance structure. Section 3 An ionic compound is a three dimensional network of positive and negative ions mutually attracted to one another. Ionic compounds tend to be harder and more brittle and to have higher boiling points than materials containing only covalently bonded atoms....
