  • Ionic Bonding = C1.1.3
    • Ionic Bonding
      • Involves the process of taking or giving Electrons to complete outermost shell.
        • Metals lose electrons to form Positive ions.
          • This is because, they have more protons than electrons.
          • These are strongly attracted to one another.
            • Gases gain electrons to form Negative ions.
              • This is because they have more electrons than protons.
            • As they are oppositley charged ions.
        • Gases gain electrons to form Negative ions.
          • This is because they have more electrons than protons.
      • Formed from metals and Non-Metals.
      • These make CHARGED IONS.
      • Untitled
      • They are closely packed in a regular lattice arrangement.
      • Very strong
    • They have high boiling and melting points because of the strong attraction between the oppositley charged ions.
      • When melt the ions are free to move, therefore they'll carry aletric current.
    • They are easily dissolved in water.
      • When dissolved the ions are free to move so they will carry a eletric current.
  • They form GAINT IONIC LATTICES.
  • Metals = Positive Charge (+)
  • Gases = Negative Charge (-)
