The properties of a compound are totally different from the individual properties of the elements that are bonded together to make that compound. In addition, compounds can be broken down chemically, while elements cannot. Examples of compounds include: •• water (H O) •• salt (NaCl) •• carbon dioxide (CO ). 2 2 Note that when the symbol for an atom has a small lower number after it, then that denotes there are that number of that particular atom in the molecule. So, water (H2O) is made up of two Basic scientific principles of physiology Chapter 1 atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen, while carbon dioxide (CO2) consists of one atom of carbon and two atoms of oxygen.
This interaction results in the formation of atoms or ions that are in a lower energy state than the original atoms. The formation of chemical bonds also results in the release of energy previously contained in the atoms, as shown in the formula atom atom atom atom energy The combining power of atoms is known as valence. Because the only shell that is important in bonding is the outermost shell, this shell is known as the valence shell (Marieb, 2014). There are several types of chemical bonds that occur between atoms, namely: •• ionic bonds •• covalent bonds •• polar bonds/hydrogen bonds.
Nitrogen molecule). 9 Chapter 1 Basic scientific principles of physiology Polar bonds 10 Sometimes molecules do not share electrons equally and so there is a separation of the electrical charge into positive or negative. This is called polarity, and because of this separation of electrical charge there is an additional weak bond. However, note that this bond is not between atoms, but is between the molecules themselves. Just as with ionic bonding, this polar bonding comes about because of the electrical rule that opposites attract.
