  • Bonding
    • Ionic Bonding
      • Positive and negative ions form when a metal reacts with a non-metal , by transferring electrons .
        • The oppositely charged ions are strongly attracted to each other, forming ionic bonds
      • ionic bonding can be shown through dot and cross diagrams
      • Between a metal (positive ion) and a non-metal (negative ion)
      • ionic bonds are strong, they can form lattices with positive and negative ions next to each other
    • Covalent Bonding
      • Electrons in the outer shells are shared between two or more atoms
        • Between non-metals
      • Examples are componds such as methane (CH4) and carbon monoxie (CO)
    • Metallic Bonding
      • The sharing of free electrons among a structure of positively charged ions
      • Metallic bonding accounts for many physical properties of metals, such as strength, ductility, thermal and electrical resistivity and conductivity
