Resonance Structures and Delocalized Pi Orbitals
In this resonance structures learning exercise, students draw all the Lewis structures for the nitrate ion, the nitrite ion and the nitronium ion as well as identify the valence electrons and show the geometry of each.
Writing Resonance Structures
In this resonance structures worksheet, high schoolers are given 4 rules to writing resonance structures. These include rules about electrons associated with atoms, the unpaired electrons, structures without octets and structures with more separation of charge.
Review of Chemical Bonding
This is an online exercise in which chemistry learners answer a series of multiple choice questions about bonding. Topics addressed include ionic and covalent bonds, electronegativity, ions, valence electrons, resonance structure, and the octet rule. When learners submit, the correct answers get highlighted in green, and if they made errors, they are highlighted in red. This is a terrific way to study for an exam.
The Nature of Covalent Bonding
In "The Nature of Covalent Bonding," chemistry hopefuls demonstrate an understanding of various types of covalent bonds, electron configuration, and resonance structures through fill in the blank, true or false, and matching questions. They complete the worksheet by drawing three electron dot structures of compounds.
VSEPR And Polarity
In this VSEPR theory learning exercise, students evaluate the electron-pair geometry of organic and inorganic molecules. They construct Lewis structures and resonance structures for 17 compounds and complete 3 short answer questions.
In this molecular structure activity, students are given a compound to answer four questions about it's structure including it's Lewis structure and resonance structures. Students also identify the molecular formula for a given drawn structure.
