Chemical Bond
TEK I7D – relate the chemical
behavior of an element including
bonding, to its placement on the
periodic table
Day 2: #4
Before there were bonds, there
Let’s review elements & the Periodic Table
hide
Periodic Table:
Periods – horizontal rows
Groups or Families – vertical columns
Elements in the same group have similar
chemical properties!
Group
Period
Atomic number = # protons and it
identifies the element!!!!!
HI

E
Valence Electrons – electrons involved in bonding;
all atoms “want” to have 8 or 0 valence electrons
to make them “happy and stable .”
The numbers in purple are the # of valence
electrons the atoms in those groups have.

Metals (pink elements) usually have 1, 2, or 3
valence electrons.
In order to have 0 or 8 valence electrons, do
you think a metal will lose or gain valence
electrons?

Metals will lose electrons and become positive ions!
Group 1 metals lose 1 ve- (which = 0 ve-)
Group 2 metals lose 2 ve- (which = 0 ve-)
Group 3 metals lose 3 ve- (which = 0 ve-)
Remember to think about the easiest way to reach 0 or 8!

When an atom loses or gains ve- it becomes an ion!
Losing 1 ve- makes an ion with a +1 charge.
Losing 2 ve- makes an ion with a +2 charge.
Losing 3 ve- makes an ion with a +3 charge.

Nonmetals (yellow elements) usually have 5,
6, 7, or 8 valence electrons.
In order to have 0 or 8 valence electrons, do
you think a nonmetal will lose or gain valence
electrons?

Nonmetals will gain electrons and become negative ions!
Group 15 (5 ve-) nonmetals gain 3 ve- (which = 8 ve-)
Group 16 (6 ve-) nonmetals gain 2 ve- (which = 8 ve-)
Group 17 (7 ve-) nonmetals gain 1 ve- (which = 8 ve-)
Remember to think about the easiest way to reach 0 or 8!

When an atom loses or gains ve- it becomes an ion!
Gaining 3 ve- makes an ion with a -3 charge.
Gaining 2 ve- makes an ion with a -2 charge.
Gaining 1 ve- makes an ion with a -1 charge.

What about Group 18 (the Noble Gases)?
“happy” and stable. They are the “perfect” elements and are
considered unreactive!

What are Chemical
Bonds?
• An attraction between two or
more atoms
• Interaction between
valence electrons
• All atoms need 0 or 8
valence electrons to
be “happy” or stable
Two Kinds of Bonds
• Ionic Bonds
-form ionic compounds
between metals and
nonmetals
-by losing /gaining electrons
• Covalent Bonds
-form covalent compounds
-by sharing electrons

element?
F Sodium
