      1) In general, what is the difference between ionic bonds, as in NaCl, and covalent bonds, as in H 2O?

      2) When two or more atomic orbitals overlap, molecular orbitals are formed. Using diagrams and your knowledge of charges
         and electrical attraction, explain this statement.

      3) Explain the relationship between potential energy and the formation of a covalent bond.

      4) Why is the hydrogen molecule, H2, more stable than the individual hydrogen atoms that bond to form it.

      5) In your own words, explain the “bond/spring” analogy for bond length between bonded atoms.
6) In table 6-1, which molecule has the highest bond energy? What does this tell us about the molecule?

7) List four examples of covalently bonded compounds.

8) Describe electronegativity. Who first assigned electronegativity values to the elements?

9) How does an element’s electronegativity relate to its position on the periodic table?

10) Compare and contrast polar and nonpolar covalent bonds.

11) What is a dipole? Give an example.

   17) Compare and contrast paired and unshared electron pairs?

   18) List the rules for Drawing Lewis Structures with many atoms.

   19) What are the steps for drawing Lewis structures?

   20) Why would atoms require sharing more than one pair of electrons in a bond?
21) What are the steps for drawing Lewis structures with multiple bonds?

22) What is a resonance structure?
