Valence Electrons
back
The outermost electrons in an atom that are responsible for the chemical reactivity and characteristics of that atom.
front
Electron Dot Structure
back
A way of showing the number of valence electrons of an atom as small dots around the element symbol.
front
Octet Rule
back
Elements tend to combine in such a way that each atom has eight electrons in its valence shell, giving it the same electronic configuration as a noble gas.
front
Cation
back
An ion formed after a neutral atom loses an electron.
front
Anion
back
An ion formed after a neutral atom gains an electron.
front
Ionic Compounds
back
Chemical compounds that are made up of cations and anions.
front
Ionic Bonds
back
The type of bond that forms between two atoms who have a very large difference in electronegativity. They form due to the transfer of electrons between these two atoms.
front
Chemical Formula
back
A way of expressing information about the proportions of atoms that constitute a particular chemical compound (like CaO or LiOH).
front
Formula Unit
back
The empirical formula of any ionic compound used for stoichiometric calculations. It is the lowest whole number ratio of ions represented in an ionic compound.
front
Coordination Number
back
The number of separate ions attached to the ion of interest in an ionic crystal structure.
front
Metallic Bonds
back
The electromagnetic interaction between delocalized electrons gathered in an "electron sea" and the metallic nuclei within metals.
front
Alloys
back
A metal made by combining two or more metallic elements, especially to give greater strength or resistance to corrosion.
front
Crystal Lattice
back
The symmetrical three-dimensional arrangement of ions inside of a crystal or solid.
