Bond where electrons are being transferred?

In summary, letter Y shows a bond where electrons are being transferred, letter X shows a bond where electrons are equally shared, letter Z shows a bond that would cause each atom to become partially charged, atom 4 can be considered an anion, and the bond shown by letter Y would cause the compound to have the highest melting point. The correct answer for which atom is an anion would depend on what element it is bonded with.

1. which letter shows a bond where electrons are being transferred?
2. which letter shoes a bond where electrons are equally shared?
3. which letter shows a bond that would cause each atom to become partially charged
4. which atom can be considered an anion?
5. which bond above would cause the compound to have the highest melting point?

answers: Y,X,Z,4,Y


are they correct??
thanks!

P.S. EN stands for electronegativity

anion i believe is negative charged atom correct, so then i am correct by saying that it is atom 4 in question #4
 
  • #3
remember, anions occur when electrons are transfered...
 
  • #4
so it would be 3 then?
 
  • #5
well it depends what '3' is attached to. fluorocarbons are not ionicly bonded, but fluorine is commonly an anion. So both 3 and 4 could be anions, but it would depend what they are bonded with.
 

1. What is a bond where electrons are being transferred?

A bond where electrons are being transferred is a type of chemical bond known as an ionic bond. In this type of bond, one atom gives away one or more electrons to another atom, resulting in one positively charged ion and one negatively charged ion. The attraction between these ions creates the bond.

2. What is the difference between an ionic bond and a covalent bond?

An ionic bond involves the transfer of electrons between atoms, while a covalent bond involves the sharing of electrons between atoms. Ionic bonds typically occur between a metal and a non-metal, while covalent bonds occur between two non-metals.

3. How does the transfer of electrons in an ionic bond affect the properties of a substance?

The transfer of electrons in an ionic bond results in the formation of ions with opposite charges. This creates a strong electrostatic attraction between the ions, making substances with ionic bonds typically have high melting and boiling points, as well as being solids at room temperature.

4. Can an ionic bond be broken?

Yes, an ionic bond can be broken through a process called dissociation, where the ions separate from each other. This can occur when the substance is dissolved in water or heated to high temperatures.

5. What are some examples of substances that have bonds where electrons are being transferred?

Some common examples of substances with bonds where electrons are being transferred include table salt (sodium chloride), magnesium oxide, and potassium iodide. These substances are typically found in ionic compounds and have distinct crystalline structures.
