HON CHEMISTRY: Hey guys, here’s the lecture from Tuesday on ionic bonding. Wow, we missed a whole bunch of you. Hope you get well soon, I don’t like having class without you!
Back to ionic bonds – keep in mind that when you write ionic bonding, you’re not trying to arrange a single structure like you do with Lewis structures. Instead, you’re writing an equation that shows electrons being lost by one atom and gained by another atom. And make sure you put the dots in the right order!
Also important, pay close attention to the comparisons of ionic and covalent bonds – and WHY! And whatever you do, stay away from bubble baths if you have mortal enemies!
