Compounds and molecules: by PvU21amT


									      Compounds and molecules:
• Molecule is made of two or more atoms that
  are chemically bonded.
• compound is made of two or more elements
  that are chemically bonded.
• Chemical bonds are the forces that hold
  atoms or ions together in a compound.
• Chemical structure is the way, the atoms or
  ions are arranged in a substance.
• Bond length is the distance between the
  nuclei of two bonded atoms.
• Bond angle is the angle formed by two bonds
  to the same atom.
   Chemical bonds, bond length, bond angle
• Chemical bonds can    • Water is a liquid at room
  bend, stretch, and      temperature because of
  rotate without          the attraction between
  breaking.               water molecules.
• The strength of all
  chemical bonds is
  different, that
  depends on type of
  Characteristics of chemical bonds:
• The ball and stick model shows
  the bond angle in a molecule of
• Bond length is given in picometer-
  (pm) is equal to 1 x 10-12
• The space-filling model of water
  shows that each hydrogen atom
  takes up less space than the
  oxygen atom, It determines the
  relative size of atoms in a
• Structural formula shows the
  structure of compound in specific
  arrangement of bonded atoms.
   Structure of compounds and their
• The chemical structure of compound
  determines the properties of that compound.
• Compounds with network structures are
  strong solids like diamonds, silicon dioxide-
  quartz. They have high melting point, rigid,
  very hard and inflexible.
• Some network solids are made of bonded
  ions like sodium chloride (table salt). The
  strong attraction between the oppositely
  charged ions give high melting points and
  boiling points.
Molecular compound: covalent comp.
• Some compounds are made of molecules.
  For example, Sugar-C12H22O11 is molecule.
  Like, oxygen-O2, Nitrogen-N2 are molecular
• Very weak force of attraction is existing
  between molecules, they exist as solids,
  liquids or gases. Melting points and boiling
  points depend on their physical state and type
  of chemical bonds involve in the molecules.
• Water is liquid at room temperature because
  of the attractions between water molecules
  that is known as Hydrogen bond, and strong
  covalent bonds exist in H2O, between H & O
        Types of Chemical Bonds
• Octet rule: Each atom try to acquire system
  of 8–electrons if possible that is considered as
  most stable electron configuration.
• Cause of formation of chemical bonds:
  Generally, atoms join to form bonds so that
  each atom has a stable electron configuration.
• There are different types of chemical bonds.
   – Ionic bonds
   – Covalent bonds
   – Co-ordinate covalent bonds
   – Metallic bonds
                Ionic bonds
• Ionic bonds: The attractive force arising
  between oppositely charged ions when
  electrons are transferred from one atom to
    Ionic bonds in ionic compounds:
• In above diagram, the sodium atom has only one
  electron in outermost shell, it loses one valence
  electron while Chlorine atom gains that electron to
  complete its octet-system of 8-electrons. As a result,
  NaCl comp. is formed.
• Sodium atom becomes positive ion by losing
  electron and Chlorine atom becomes negative ion
  by gaining electron. Therefore Na+ and Cl- combine
  forming ionic bond between them.
• Ionic compounds are in the form of network. They
  don’t conduct electric current in solid state, but on
  dissolving or melting they are good conductors of
  electric current.
            Covalent bonds:
• Covalent bond: A bond is formed when atoms
  share one or more pairs of electrons.
                Two chlorine atoms (below) share
                electrons equally to form a nonpolar covalent bond.
                Covalent bonds are often shown as a single line
                drawn between two atoms. The model at left
                shows that the two chlorine atoms share two
                electrons (1-pair). Dots represent electrons that are
                not involved in bonding.

• Covalent bonds are often shown as a single
  line drawn between two atoms. The model at
  left shows that the two chlorine atoms share
  two electrons (1-pair).
 Dots represent electrons that are not involved
  in bonding.
 Shared electron pairs remain exactly in the
  center of bonded atoms.
             Covalent bonds:
• In formation of covalent bonds, atoms may share
  two or three pairs of electrons.
 Polar and nonpolar covalent bonds:
• Nonpolar Covalent bonds: Covalent bonds
  are formed by sharing equal number of
  electrons between two similar atoms are
  nonpolar. EX: H-H, Cl-Cl, O=O, N≡N
• Polar Covalent: Covalent bond formed
  between two dissimilar atoms is polar
  covalent bond. The shared electron pair
  remains more towards more electro negative
  atom, rather than less electro negative atom.
  EX:    H-Cl, H-Br, N-H bonds in NH3

                Metallic bonds:
• Metallic bond: A bond formed by the
  attraction between positively charged metal
  ions and the electrons around them.
  – The strength of metallic bond is very high.
• Metals are flexible and conduct electric
  current well because their atoms and
  electrons move freely throughout a metal’s
  packed structure.
• All metals, like copper, iron, gold, silver nickel
  have metallic bonds.
• All metals are solids except Mercury.
• Ion: An atom caring positive or negative
  charge. EX: H+ , N-3 are monoatomic ions.
• Polyatomic ions: An ion positive or negative
  made of two or more than two atoms.
• Parentheses group the atoms of a polyatomic
  ion in chemical molecules of compounds.
• EX:     NH4+
• Some names of polyatomic anions relate to
  the oxygen content of the anion. Most of their
  names end with –ite or –ate. In molecule,
  [NH4]2CO3 → Ammonium carbonate, [NH4]+1
  and [CO3]-2 join to form compound-[NH4]2CO3

Empirical formula: The composition of a compound
 in terms of the relative numbers and kinds of atoms
 in the simple ratio.
Molecular formula: A chemical formula that shows the
 number and kinds of atoms in a molecule, but not
 the arrangement of atoms.
Molar mass: The mass of one molecule in grams or
 sum of atomic masses of total atoms in 1-molecule
 in grams. Ex: H2O= 2(H)+1(O)=2(1)+1(16)=18 g/mol
    Calculation to find Empirical formula:
•   One mole of unknown compound has 36.04
    g. of carbon and 6.04 g of hydrogen. What is
    the compound’ empirical formula?
1) Write the atomic masses
Atomic masses: carbon=12 g/mol, H= 1g/mol
2) Find the molar ratio by dividing mass of
    element by its atomic mass. The molar ratio
    of elements in the compound is empirical
    formula of compound.
Mole of carbon=36.04 g /12 g/mol = 3 mol
    H=6.04g/1g/mol = 6 mol
Answer: E.F = C3H6

  and DNA are all natural polymers.
• Polymers are widely applicable. For example,
  Polypropylene is molded to make plastic
  containers, some parts of cars and
  appliances. Also used to make carpet, ropes,
