Problem 118

Consider the following Lewis structure where E is an unknown element: What are some possible identities for element E? Predict the molecular structure (including bond angles) for this ion. (See Exercises 105 and 106.)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

 Ionic Bonds- o Bond created by electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions o Occurs between a metal and a non-metal o Electrons transferred between the cation and the anion o Extremely strong bonds  Covalent Bonds- o Bonds created by the sharing of electrons between atoms o Occurs between 2 nonmetals (results in a neutral overall charge) o Electrons not transferred o Electrons are shared in pairs o Weaker than ionic bonds  Polar Vs. Nonpolar o Polar covalent- unequal sharing of electrons, occurs when different elements are covalently bonded to one another, partial charges on the atoms sharing electrons  Shorter bonds  Stronger bo
