A mutual attraction between the nuclei and valence electrons of different atoms that Bond the atoms together.
Bonds that form from a metal and a non-metal through a large number of cations and anions
Occurs when valence electrons are transferred between atoms.
Ex: Calcium and Florine
Properties: Granular or powdery appearance, dissolve, high melting point, conductive only when melted or dissolved.
Form between non-metal and non-metal, these atoms share their electrons equally .
Occurs when electrons are shared between atoms
Properties: Granular or powdery appearance, sometimes dissolve and sometimes it doesn't, low melting point, no du ductility.
Form between a metal and a metal. Weak bond.
Occurs when electrons are shared freely between metals.
Properties: shiny appearance, doesn't dissolve, high melting point, conduct as a solid and liquid.
