- -The atoms that results when an atom gains or loses electrons
- - elements remain the same because the nummber of protons hasn't changed
- - They gain or lose electrons to look like the nearest noble gas
- - Compounds that consist of two or more elements that are chemically linked together
- - The links that hold atoms together are called chemical bonds
A chemical bond that forms between oppositely charged ions
- - A compound that forms when one or more valence electrons are transferred from one atom to another
- - an ionic bond forms between two ions, forming a neutral compound
A compound formed when atoms of 2 or more different elements share electrons
- A chemical bond in which one or more pairs of electrons are shared by 2 atoms
- - The shared electrons are attracted to the nuclei of both atoms
- - This attraction holds atoms together
- - The atoms are uncharged because there is no transfer of electrons
- - The smallest particle of a covalent compounds
- - Not all molecules are compounds because compounds are made up of two or more different elements
- - ex O2 is a molecule not a compound.
