Molecules A molecule is a collection of two or more atoms that have a neutral charge. An example of a molecule in Gatorade is Glucose (C6H12O6).
Ionic Compounds An ionic compound is a compound made up of a metal and non metal. The ionic compound in Gatorade is NaCl.
Chemical Formula of Glucose Glucose is a main ingredient in Gatorade sports drinks. The chemical formula of glucose is C6H12O6.
Balancing Equations The equation for the formation of NaCl is Na + Cl yields NaCl If you were making the compound Magnesium Chloride you would have to cross and drop to make the equation Mg + 2Cl yields Mg(Cl2)
Electrolytes Gatorade replace electrolytes in the athlete’s body with electrolytes such as NaCl. An electrolyte is a "medical/scientific" term for salts, specifically ions. The term electrolyte means that this ion is electrically-charged.
Polarity Polarity is the separation of charges through electric dipoles in an atom. The molecule H20 which is found in Gatorade is a polar molecule.
VSEPR The H2O molecules in Glucose have the VSEPR shape of bent because it has 1 pair of unused elections and 2 bonding sites.
Intermolecular Forces Intermolecular forces are the interaction between atoms and ions. The H2O in Gatorade uses hydrogen bonds due to the fact that Hydrogen is bonded to Oxygen.
