Chemical Bonding

 Ionic Bonding: Chemical bonding that results from the electrical attraction between cations and anions. (Metal+Nonmetal)

- dissolves in water

- high melting point

- conducts in water and liquid but not solid

Ex: table salt

Covalent Bonding: Results from the sharing of electron pairs between two atoms (Nonmetal+Nonmetal)

- mostly dissolved in water

- low melting point

- never conducts

Ex: Carbon

Metallic Bonding: Metallic bonding is the electrostatic attraction between the positively charged atomic nuclei of metal atoms and the delocalised electrons in the metal. (Metal+Metal)

- shiny

- high melting point

- always conducts

Ex: copper
