Study Notes

Chemical Bonds and Water Properties

  • Molecules are groups of atoms held together in stable association, while compounds are molecules that contain more than one type of element.
  • Most substances encountered in everyday life are compounds, and their properties are distinct from the elements they are created from.
  • Atoms within molecules are held together by chemical bonds, which are forces of attraction that make things solid.
  • Each chemical bond type is characterized by a specific bond energy related to electrons, and valence electrons dictate how many bonds an atom can have and what bonds they can participate in.
  • The discovery of valence electrons was important in understanding how atoms bond together to form compounds.
  • Ionic bonds form when one atom wants to lose electrons and the other wants to gain electrons, resulting in the formation of positive and negative ions.
  • Metallic bonds form within metals, where electrons move freely between atoms, creating a "sea" of electrons.
  • Covalent bonds form when atoms share electrons, and the strength of the bond depends on the number of electrons shared.
  • Polar covalent bonds occur when electrons are not shared equally between atoms, creating partial positive and negative charges.
  • Ions, which are positively or negatively charged atoms, form the basis of many biological interactions and are involved in various biological processes.
  • The sodium-potassium pump is an example of a biological bond, where three sodium ions are pushed out of the cell while two potassium ions enter, creating a differential charge for nerve impulses.
  • Water is an important compound in life, and its properties include hydrogen bonding, polarity, cohesion, adhesion, high specific heat, high heat evaporation, and the fact that ice floats on water.

Chemical Bonds and Water Properties

  • Molecules are stable associations of atoms, while compounds are molecules with more than one element.
  • Properties of compounds are distinct from the elements they are made of.
  • Chemical bonds are forces of attraction that hold atoms together in molecules.
  • Chemical bonds have specific bond energies related to electrons.
  • Valence electrons determine the number and types of bonds an atom can form.
  • Ionic bonds form when one atom loses electrons and another gains electrons.
  • Metallic bonds occur within metals, where electrons move freely between atoms.
  • Covalent bonds form when atoms share electrons, creating molecules.
  • Covalent bonds can be single, double, or triple, depending on the number of shared electrons.
  • Ions, either negatively charged (anions) or positively charged (cations), are involved in many biological processes.
  • The sodium-potassium pump is an example of the importance of ions in cellular processes.
  • Water is essential for life and exhibits properties such as hydrogen bonding, polarity, cohesion, and adhesion.
