There are three different types of bonds: ionic, covalent, and metallic. In this Tackk, I will explore the differences between bond type.
An ionic bond is a type of chemical bond that involves a metal and a nonmetal through. Put simply, it's a bond formed by the attraction between two oppositely charged ions.
Covalent bonds involve the sharing of electron pairs between atoms. The balance of attracting and repelling forces between atoms when they share electrons is known as covalent bonding.
Metallic bonding is the electromagnetic interaction between electrons and the nuclei within metals.
