I believe that "bond character" just simply means the nature and characteristics of the bond based on what type it is (covalent, ionic, etc.).

I believe bond character is referring to what type of features the bond is representative of, such as whether it may be an ionic or covalent bond or is the bond length observed more characteristic of a single or double bond between two certain atoms. Hope this helps!

I'm confused on the hydrogen bonding question, what are the rules that apply to h bonds? Does anyone know how to remember them?

@ the H bonding-- Hydrogen bonds form when a Hydrogen is covalently bonded to an N, O, or F, and is close to another N, O, or F that has an available lone pair (to actually form the H bond). It is easy to remember these 3 elements because they are the top right of the periodic table (excluding the noble gases) and are therefore the most electronegative elements

Hi Alyssa! To add onto what Gina mentioned, take into account the dipoles of those atoms. For example, in CH4, the H atoms don't have any dipole moments so they can't hydrogen bond to the atoms in other molecules that have dipole moments.

Bond character just refers to how covalent or ionic a bond is (usually a covalent bond in a molecule) this is given through the bond length and difference in electronegativity between the two atoms at question :)

Thank you, this was helpful! I didn't realize how helpful dipole moments were in knowing the characteristics of molecules.

It means that every bond has two characters, covalent characters, and ionic characters.
