How are Atom and Element Networks Structured?
This post will introduce various chemical structures of atoms and elements including ionic networks, covalent networks, covalent molecular, and metallic networks for Prelim Chemistry.
This video introduces how atoms may bond.
Ionic networks are formed through the clustering of ionic compounds into a lattice, e.g NaCl. This video will go through more on ionic networks.
Covalent networks are similar to ionic networks but the atoms are bonded together covalently. This video explains more on covalent networks.
Covalent Molecules are compounds held together by strong covalent bonds. This video explains more about covalent molecular structures.
Metallic bonding is interesting in that it involves metal atoms being fixed in place while the electrons from the metal atoms move freely throughout the metal. This video will explain metallic bonds in a little more depth.
