Full course description
In this course, we will learn how to draw electron structures for ionic and covalent compounds, as well as understand the electronic configuration of a noble gas.
This course contains three modules:
- Drawing Electron Structures of Ions
- Draw Dot-and-Cross Diagram for Ionic Compound
- Draw Dot-and-Cross Diagram for Covalent Compound
Students will learn to:
- describe the stable configuration of a noble gas
- describe the formation of positive ions (cations) and negative ions (anions) to achieve the electronic configuration of a noble gas
- draw electron structure of the ions
- name and state formula of common polyatomic ions such as NH4+, OH- ,CO32-,NO3- ,HCO3-, SO42- and PO43-
- define valency
- write chemical formula of ionic compound and covalent compound
- draw a dot-and-cross diagram for ionic compounds and covalent compounds.
