Electrons are shared between
Covalent bonding occurs when
two or more elements share
Covalent bonding occurs because the
atoms in the compound both seek to
Covalent compounds are also
This most commonly occurs when two NONMETALS bond
together. Because both of the nonmetals will want to
gain electrons, the elements involved will share electrons
in an effort to fill their valence shells.
Electrons are transferred from one atom
By either losing or gaining negatively
charged electrons, the reacting atoms
The oppositely charged ions are
attracted to each other by electrostatic
forces, which creates this ionic bond.
Ionic bonding happens
between a METAL and
Made up of positive and
negatively charged ions,
or cations and anions.
Ionic compounds are solids
with high melting and boiling
Are ELECTRICALLY NEUTRAL. i.e. sum of
positive charges = sum of negative
