Types of bonds
Ionic bonds:
An ionic bond is where metals and nonmetals bond. One atom donates an electron (becoming
a +1 ion) and the other accepts it (becoming a 1 ion). This difference in charge makes the two
atoms electrostatically attracted to each other, therefore forming an ionic bond.…

Permanent dipoledipole forces:
The greater the difference in electronegativity between elements with covalent bonds, the
stronger the permanent dipoledipole forces will be. These are permanent (unlike van der Waal
forces) because they are due to the electronegativity of the elements, not the random chance of
electrons. When a substance melts…
