  • Hey Chris! Did you study for the Chemistry quiz that we have today?
  • Of course! I'll explain you in our way to class.
  • Oh no! I tottally forgot! could you explain me whats the quiz going to be on?
  • The quiz is going to be based on intramolecular chemical forces. There are 3 types of intramolecular forces.
  • And what are they!?
  • Intramolecular forces are the forces that hold atoms together within a molecule. Each one with different characteristics.
  • Could you describe them for me?
  • OK what else?
  • Intramolecular forces can be either ionic, covalent, or metallic.
  • Ionic bonds occur between a metal and a non-metal were the metal loses electrons to become a cation while the nonmetal gains elecrons to become an anion.
  • NaCl for example, is an ionic bond where sodium becomes a cation and chlorine becomes an anion
  • OK, and what about covalent bonds?
  • Covalent bonds are bonds between atoms that have similar electronegativities and share their electrons. Depending on their END they can either be covalent or non-covalent
  • Cl-Cl for example, is a nonpolar covalent bond while H-Cl is a polar covalent bond.
  • I think I am starting to get it now, and what about metallic bonds?
