Chemical bond- mutual electrical attraction between the nuclei and valence electrons of different atoms that bunds the atoms together
Ionic bonding- chemical bonding that results in the attraction between cations and anions.
1-) dissolves (in water)
2-) high melting point
3-) conducts only as a liquid (not a solid)
Covalent bonding- results from the sharing of electron pairs between two at
Nonpolar covalent bond- when the bonding electrons are shared equally by the bonded atoms resulting in a balanced distribution of electrical charge.
Polar covalent bond- when the bonded atoms have an unequal attraction for the shared electrons
1-)usually dissolves (in water)
2-)low melting point
3-) never conducts
Metallic bonding- chemical bonding that results from the attraction between metal atoms and the surrounding sea of electrons
2-)high melting point
3-) always conducts
