NCERT Solutions for Class 11 Chemistry Chapter 4 Chemical Bonding and Molecular Structure


A chemical bond is the physical process that causes atoms and molecules to be attracted to each other and held together in more stable chemical compounds. The Valency is the number of electrons in the outer shell of an atom which are able to be used to form bonds with other atoms. This chapter touches on several fundamental concepts in the field of chemistry (such as hybridization and the modern theories on chemical bonding). The concepts covered in this chapter are listed below.

  • VSEPR theory
  • Lewis structures
  • Valence bond theory
  • The polar character of covalent bonds
  • The concept of hybridization
  • The molecular orbital theory of homonuclear diatomic molecules
  • Hydrogen bonding.
