Ionic Bonding Vs Covalent Bonding
Promoted by: Christi Wright
What Is Ionic Bonding?
Example Of Ionic Bonding:
What is Covalent Bonding?
Example of Covalent Bonding:
What are valence electrons and how do they relate to each type of bonding?
- Valence electrons are the number of electrons that associate with an atom.
- Valence electrons relate to Ionic bonding because valence electrons are taken from the less electronegative and the more electronegative atom receives them.
- In covalent bonding ,the valence electrons are shared between the atoms.
How does periodic trends affect bonding?
Explanation: The greater the difference between two atoms will allow one atom to completely take away the electron from the other atom which is ionic bonding ,but the lower the difference between the atoms ,that is when the atoms have to share electrons which is covalent bonding.
