For this blog entry I want you to consider the chemistry we have done so far. We've looked at characteristics of reaction, what happens to the atoms in a reaction, and some solution chemistry. Where in the universe (planetary, solar system, galactic, etc.) do acids and bases exist? and what atoms and molecules are involved? What organic molecules can be found off-Earth? Where are they? How do they form? This entry will be good this week and the week after break so you could work on it over break as well.
Okay, for the next two weeks we'll work on this blog entry for bonding. Remember that you can respond more than once to any blog. For this one I want you to think about some of the common compounds (molecules) that are found in our universe. Without repeating anyone else's work pick one molecule and
1) describe the elements involved and their type (metals or non).
2) describe what type of bonds hold it together
2.5) If ionic, describe the ionizations as well
2.5) If covalent, how many shared pairs as well.
3) what this compoun is useful for
4) where it is found on and off Earth
This blog is for you...
