Unformatted text preview: Ionic Bond - A bond that results from electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions.
The cation is positively charged, while the anion is negatively charged.
Lattice - A regularly repeating three-dimensional array of atoms, molecules, or ions.
Molecular Orbital - A combination of atomic orbitals in molecular orbital theory that provides
an orbital description of a molecule analogous to the atomic orbital description of atoms.
Molecular Orbital Theory - A description of bonding that combines atomic orbitals from each
bondedatom to produce a set of molecular orbitals.
Molecule - A chemical species containing a covalent bond.
Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory - A theory used to predict bonding geometries
that states that electron pairs will be distributed about the central atom to minimize electron pair
