Please note: this is a digital product only available in RadarOpus.
Petrucci concepts are a set of topics covered in the textbook General Chemistry: Principles and Modern Applications by Ralph H. Petrucci and others.
Some of the concepts include:
- Chemical bonding: the force that holds atoms together in a chemical compound. There are two idealized types of bonding: covalent and ionic.
- Bond order: the number of chemical bonds between a pair of atoms. It indicates the stability and strength of a bond. Bond order and bond length are inversely proportional.
- Solutions: homogeneous mixtures of two or more substances. They have physical properties that depend on the concentration and nature of the solute and solvent.These are just some examples of Petrucci concepts. There are many more topics in the textbook that cover different aspects of general chemistry.
