An ionic bond is formed between a cation A1 and an anion B2. How would the energy of the ionic bond [see Equation (9.2)] be affected by the following changes? (a) doubling the radius of A1, (b) tripling the charge on A1, (c) doubling the charges on A1 and B2, (d) decreasing the radii of A1 and B2 to half their original values.
Spencer Kociba CHEM 101 Lecture notes Lecture 10/18/16 BONDS AND COMPOUNDS ● Types of bonds ○ Ionic: when a metal and a nonmetal bond (electron is transferred from one element (usually the metal) to the other). This produces a charge and makes ionically bonded substances highly conductive ■ Electrostatic attraction between a cation and an anion ■ Remember: an ION is a CHARGED particle −¿ ¿ ■ Ex. +¿Cl❑ Na❑ ¿ ○ Covalent: when two nonmetals bond (the electron
