  1. How does one determine the difference between an ionic and covalent compound by looking at the compounds name?
    If the first element is a metal it's ionic
  2. Ionic compounds always come together in a
    __ to __ ratio
    1 to 1 ratio
  3. An ionic bond is made up of a metal ion called a
    Cation
  4. A non metal Ion is called an
    Anion
  5. In a covalent bond if one element wants the shared electrons more then the other it is referred to as
    Polar Covalent Bond
  6. Polar Covalent is...
    • 2 Different Non-Metals
    • Shared unequally
  7. Non-Polar Covalent is...
    • 2 Non-metals that are the same
    • Shared equally
  8. Covalent is...
    2 Nonmetals
  9. What are the 7 diatomic gases?
    • Hydrogen
    • Nitrogen
    • Oxygen
    • Fluorine
    • Chlorine
    • Bromine
    • Iodine
  10. Why are all diatomic gases non polar?
    Because the electrons are shared equally
  11. Why is water highly polarized?
    Because the element oxygen wants the electrons more due its high electronegativity
  12. Attraction an atom has for a shared pair of electrons
    Electronegativity
  13. Direction of the polar bond in a molecule
    Dipole Movement
