Distinguish Ionic and covalent

Brandon Hines

Ionic

  • boiling point high
  • melting point high
  • one metal one nonmetal,
  • what happens to electrons Ionic bond, also known as electrovalent bond is a type of bond formed from the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions in a chemical compound.
  • LiF - Lithium Fluoride
  • LiCl - Lithium Chloride
  • LiBr - Lithium Bromide

Covalent

  • Melting point Low
  • Boiling Point Low
  • Covalent bonding is a form of chemical bonding between two non metallic atoms which is characterized by the sharing of pairs of electrons between atoms and other covalent bonds.
  • O3 - ozone
    H2 - hydrogen
    H2O - water
