Lesson Flashcards: Types of Chemical Bonding Chemistry • 10th Grade

Octet rule

The rule that atoms tend to transfer or share electrons to get the eight valence electrons and the same electron configuration as a noble gas atom

Lewis structure diagrams

Simplified schematic illustrations that show how valence shell electrons are shared or transferred between atoms in covalently or ionically bonded compounds

Metallic bonding

A strong electrostatic attraction that exists between positively charged metal cations and delocalized electrons

Covalent bonds

The bonds formed when two nonmetal atoms share one or more pairs of electrons

Chemical bonds

The forces that hold atoms together in molecules

Valence electrons

The electrons of atoms or ions that are located in an outermost electron shell
