Today at school we learned about covalent bonding.I have 5 electrons in my outer shell,our school project for tomorrow is to find someone that we can use to share electrons and make covalent bonds.But there is a problem,who can I work with?
Hi,I am a Nitrogen atom.I am a nonmetal and my location at the periodic table is at group 5.
Each one of us have one extra electron in our outer shell that may be useful to you.We can all share electrons to make covalent bonds and get an "A+" in the project
want to work with us?
Hi we are all hydrogen atoms and we would like to work with you since you also don't have a partner.We are also nonmetals and we are at group 5 too
You guys,I would like to work with you,so lets work to get that "A+"
Subject: Covalent Bonding
We need to be fast though because school is almost over,what are we going to do?
don't worry guys,we can continue working at the bus and at my house,we can also play call of duty WWII
We love to work and search information here at the library,now lets search for information to our project.
So you guys I did some research about our project.By sharing the two electrons where the shells touch,each hydrogen can count 2 electrons in our outer shell and you nitrogen can count 8 electrons in your outer shell.
Then our full outer shells with their shared electrons are now stable
and the NH3 molecule will not react further with other hydrogen or nitrogen atoms.
This are the notes to make the diagram:Note the 3 pairs (6 electrons) shared between the atoms.Each electron pair is one bond. This is called a single covalent bond.And we make Ammonia.
so there should be 3 bonds in total
We need to carefully make a diagram about it
So how would our covalent bond look like?
So our covalent bond has 3 bonds and is ammonia
Thank you for your attention!
The symbol is NH3
Day of presentations
Made by the share of electrons with 3 hydrogens and one nitrogen
teacher's grade:You guys got an A+ for your project
