What is a chemical bond?

A chemical bond is a force that holds atoms together in a molecule.

What are the three main types of chemical bonds?

The three main types of chemical bonds are ionic bonds, covalent bonds, and metallic bonds.

What is an ionic bond?

An ionic bond is a type of chemical bond formed between positively and negatively charged ions.

What is a covalent bond?

A covalent bond is a type of chemical bond formed by the sharing of electrons between atoms.

What is a metallic bond?

A metallic bond is a type of chemical bond formed between metal atoms.

What is valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory?

VSEPR theory is a model used in chemistry to predict the shape of individual molecules based on the repulsion between electron pairs in the valence shell of atoms.

What is electronegativity?

Electronegativity is a measure of an atom's ability to attract electrons in a chemical bond.

What is a polar covalent bond?

A polar covalent bond is a type of covalent bond where the sharing of electrons between atoms is unequal, resulting in a partial positive and partial negative charge.

What is an ionic compound?

An ionic compound is a compound composed of positively and negatively charged ions held together by electrostatic attractions.

What is a Lewis dot structure?

A Lewis dot structure is a diagram that represents the valence electrons of an atom using dots.

What is a chemical formula?

A chemical formula is a representation of a compound using symbols for the elements and subscripts to indicate the number of atoms of each element in a molecule.

What is hybridization?

Hybridization is a concept in chemistry where atomic orbitals mix to form hybrid orbitals that influence the shape, polarity, and bonding properties of molecules.

What is a molecular orbital?

A molecular orbital is a mathematical function that describes the behavior of an electron in a molecule.

What is a resonance structure?

A resonance structure is one of two or more Lewis structures that collectively describe the bonding in a molecule or ion.

What are intermolecular forces?

Intermolecular forces are forces of attraction or repulsion that occur between molecules.
