Unformatted text preview: Charactering Bonds: Greater electronegativity difference means less covalent character and greater ionic character. o Any compound that conducts an electronic current when melt is an ionic compound. 8.3 Bond Polarity and Dipole Moments Dipolar molecules molecules with a somewhat negative end and a somewhat positive end. Molecules with preferential orientation in an electric field. o Dipole moment is defined as the product magnitude of charge on the atoms and the distance between the two bonded atoms. Polar Bonds & Polar Molecules Molecules can have polar bonds but no dipole moment. 8.4 Ions: Electrons Configurations and Sizes Noble Gas Electron Configurations...
