|Chemical Bonding and Molecular Structure (Chemistry)||Close X|
Chemical bond is the attractive force which holds various constituents (such as atoms, ions) together in different chemical species.
Kossel-Lewis Approach to Chemical Bonding
Lewis postulated that atoms attain the stable octet when they are chemically bonded.
Notations to represent valence electrons in an atom
Significance of Lewis symbols − The number of dots represents the number of valence electrons.
Atoms tend to gain, lose, or share electrons so as to have eight electrons in their valence shells.
