8.1 Chemical Bonds, Lewis Symbols and the Octet Rule
Electrostatic Forces that exist between ions of opposite charge. Most Often Ionic Substances result from the interaction of metals on the far left side of the periodic table with the nonmetals on the far right side (excluding group 8A)
Sharing of Electrons between two atoms. Examples would be nonmetallic elements interactions with each other.
Metals such as copper, iron, and aluminum. Each atom in a metal is bonded to several neighboring atoms.
Chemical Symbol for the element. Plus dot for each valence electron.
Atoms tend to gain, lose or share electrons until they are surrounded by eight valence electrons.
