Week of 4/11 – 4/16 Bond type is influenced by metallic character of the things bonding Metal + metal = metallic bond. Metal + nonmetal = ionic bond Nonmetal + nonmetal = covalent bond COVALENT BONDS -Happen bw elements of similar metallic character - tend to be stronger than ionic bonds -involve e- sharing -Involve orbital overlap - bonds usually don’t break in phase changes of small molecules or in solution; whereas in an ionic bond they always break in phase changes, (s) (l), and in solution if they are soluble - both nuclei of bonded atoms attract shared e- - not a static bond, it’s more of a dynamic pulsing bond bw the two atoms There are specific partners in covalent bonds and not specific in ionic bonds Covalent bond length- length bw two bonded atoms’ nucl
