Multiple Bonds (Section)
The nitrogen atoms in N2 participate in multiple bonding, whereas those in hydrazine, N2H4, do not. (a) Draw Lewis structures for both molecules. (b) What is the hybridization of the nitrogen atoms in each molecule? (c) Which molecule has the stronger N—N bond?
Intro to Chemistry Chemistry The study of matter and its transformations Matter Anything that takes up space Pure Substances -Only one type of matter -Always have the same composition -Can only be separated by chemical means (Elements and compounds) Mixtures -Several types of matter -Can have variable composition -Can be separated by physical means (Homogeneous and Heterogeneous) States of Matter Solid Liquid Gas -has volume and shape -has volume but no shape -has the shape and volume of the container Transformations of matter Physical change
