5.02 Ionic and covalent bonds
Transcript of 5.02 Ionic and covalent bonds
To Sodium, from Neon.
Dear sodium, I'm writing to answer your question, "Why won't I bond with you". Well I'll tell you. I am a noble gas, meaning I don't usually participate in chemical bonds as well as you can. As you know, I, Neon, have eight electrons in my outer shell, and I don't want to donate any, I don't want to accept any therefore I am nonreactive. I'm sorry to tell you this but all of the noble gases have full outer shells, so we are all nonreactive. Sometimes the noble gases are called "inert" because of we are not reactive. I hope you understand sodium.
