Lavelle Lecture 11/6

Postby Isis_DW_3G » Fri Nov 06, 2020 1:04 pm

In today's lecture, when discussing the correction of the covalent model, Dr. Lavelle used the term "Atom with closer e- pair."
Does anyone know what he means by "closer e- pair?"
Thank you!

When Lavelle says this, he is referring to the unequal sharing of electrons. If you look at models (search up polar covalent bonds) depicting this, you can see electrons closer to one atom than the other. This results in a negative dipole.

In his lecture, he also talked about charge density. Is that the same thing as its pulling ability?
