  • Ionic Bonding
  • SODIUM loses one electron to form a sodium ion
    • electron is not lost
      • BUT transferred to a chlorine atom
        • oppositely charged ions
          • electrostatically attratced to eachother
  • electron is not lost
    • BUT transferred to a chlorine atom
      • oppositely charged ions
        • electrostatically attratced to eachother
  • SODIUM CHLORIDE
    • SODIUM loses one electron to form a sodium ion
    • held in tact by ionic bonds
    • CALCIUM loses two electrons
      • ONE electron is transferred to a CHLORINE atom
        • ANOTHER electron is transferred to ANOTHER CHLORINE atom
          • OPPOSITE charges must balance each other out
    • ionic bonds between charged particles result in a GIANT LATTICE arrangement
    • Each atom has brackets around it to resemble that its an ionic bond between particles
