CHEM 110 Recitation 7 Recitation 7 Learning objectives Polarity: For simple molecules, be able to determine if a molecule is polar, given only the molecular formula For molecules with more than one central atom, determine polarity given the Lewis structure or structural formula. Valence bond theory (hybrid orbitals) Using the electron domain geometry, be able to predict the type of hybrid orbitals used by an atom when it forms covalent bonds. Know the shape (geometry) of the different types of hybrid orbitals. Understand how valence bond theory can be used to explain bonding in structures with resonance. Be able to identify σ and π bonds given a molecular structure (or Lewis structure) or

Be able to use the rules of valence to expand carbon backbone diagrams into condensed molecular formulas or structural formulas. Know what is meant by the following terms: hydrocarbon, alkane, alkene, alkyne, and aromatic hydrocarbons. Given a molecular formula or structure, be able to identify the class of hydrocarbon.
