Bonding Review

In this segment, we review Unit 4, "Chemical Bonds." The unit covered the importance of evidence-based science and looked at both intra-molecular bonds that hold atoms together and intermolecular bonds, which exist between one molecule and another.

Georgia Standards of Excellence

SC1Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the use of the modern atomic theory and periodic law to explain the characteristics of atoms and elements.

SC1.aEvaluate the merits and limitations of different models of the atom in relation to relative size, charge, and position of protons, neutrons, and electrons in the atom.

SC1.bConstruct an argument to support the claim that the proton (and not the neutron or electron) defines the element’s identity.

SC1.c

Construct an explanation, based on scientific evidence, of the production of elements heavier than hydrogen by nuclear fusion.

SC1.dConstruct an explanation that relates the relative abundance of isotopes of a particular element to the atomic mass of the element.

SPS2Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain how atoms bond to form stable compounds.

SPS2.aAnalyze and interpret data to predict properties of ionic and covalent compounds. (Clarification statement: Properties are limited to types of bonds formed, elemental composition, melting point, boiling point, and conductivity.)

SPS2.bDevelop and use models to predict formulas for stable, binary ionic compounds based on balance of charges.

SPS2.cUse the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) nomenclature for translating between chemical names and chemical formulas. (Clarification statement: Limited to binary covalent and binary ionic, containing main group elements, compounds but excludes polyatomic ions.)
