    Lab Report Ionic and Covalent Bonds Lab: Ionic and Covalent Bonds Introduction: The purpose of this experiment was to explore the properties of chemical substances that can be used to identify the types of bonds in a chemical substance using a laboratory procedure. The two types of bonds being identified were ionic and covalent. Based on a substance’s properties, how can you determine whether its bonds are ionic or covalent? This is the question I posed before starting the experiment.

    and distinguish ionic and covalent bonds. The purpose is also to take seven substances, sucrose, potassium carbonate, calcium chloride, stearic acid, sodium chloride, wax and salicylic acid, and observe them by testing the melting order, in addition to each of the substance’s conductivity and solubility. Using the information gathered from testing the melting, solubility and the conductivity of each of the substance, can help determine if the substance is ionic or covalent. To determine the melting

    Ionic Bonds, Covalent Bonds, and Polymers An attraction between atoms that allows chemical substances to form is commonly referred to as a chemical bond. Two of the most common types of chemical bonds are ionic bonds and covalent bonds. Both ionic and covalent bonds can be mixed together in order to form mixtures and compounds. While the two types of chemical bonds have several similarities, they are also vastly different. Ionic and covalent bonds are formed when two or more elements bond together

  • Different Types Of Covalent Bonds

    A noncovalent bond is very weak but it is necessary to form the shape of DNA. The 4 different types of covalent bonds are: electrostatic interactions, hydrogen bonds, van der Waals interactions, and hydrophobic interactions. They are very different in their strength, specificity, geometry, and the way they are affected by water. Electrostatic interactions occur when a charged group on one molecule interacts with an oppositely charged group on a different molecule. Coloumb’s law gives the energy of

    This results in a concentration of negative charges nearer the oxygen atom and thus further from the positively charges protons that make the nuclei of the hydrogen atoms. The bond formed is intermediate between a fully ionic bond and a purely covalent bond. There is a separation of charges but not complete as in the formation of ions. The partial charge that is produced is symbolized by d. In Water, one side of the molecule, where the hydrogen atoms are, will be

    endothermic, it cools the water, making it freeze more quickly. Another theory focuses on the bonds of water, saying that hydrogen bonds bring water molecules into close contact, so the natural repulsion between the molecules causes the covalent O-H bonds to store energy. When the liquid warms, the hydrogen bonds and water molecules stretch. The covalent molecules shrink and give up their energy, so the covalent bonds giving up their energy is equivalent to a cooling process. Hard and soft water have many

    1.Introduction Halogen bonding, XB, is the product of a non-covalent interaction between a halogen X and a negative site B (e.g., Lewis base). The halogen, X, is usually part of an R-X molecule where R can be another halogen, an organic or an inorganic electron-donating-group. Halogen bonding (XB) is in some ways analogous to hydrogen bonding (HB). In the latter, a hydrogen atom is shared between an atom, group or molecule that “donates” and another that “accepts” it.[1-3] In halogen bonding, it

    solution for the nucleophilic double bond on the alkene to successfully attack it. This is to say, that if this reaction is done in water, with the hydrogen as the electrophile, the O-H bond is too strong for the double bond to effectively attack the hydrogen and detach it. If instead H3O+ is available in acidic conditions, the extra proton attached to the molecule is the electrophile; this electrophile is strong enough for the reaction to proceed. After the double bond attacks the hydrogen, a carbocation

    phosphorus (V) oxide, P4O10. Phosphorus (III) oxide (tetraphosphorus hexoxide) Phosphorus (III) oxide is a white solid, melting at 24°C and boiling at 173°C. The phosphorus is using only three of its outer electrons (the 3 unpaired p electrons) to form bonds with the oxygens. Phosphorus (V) oxide (tetraphosphorus decoxide) Phosphorus (V) oxide is also a white solid, subliming (turning straight
