What is covalent bonding?
Covalent bonding is when two atoms share electrons and so they can have a complete outer shell (8 electrons).

What is metallic bonding?
A regular arrangement of electrons in a sea of delocallised electrons.
2 of 6
What is ionic bonding?
Ionic bonding is where electrons either loose or gain electrons to make sure they have a full outer shell.

What are giant ionic compounds?
Giant ionic compounds is the electrostatic force between oppositely charged ions. They are in a giant ionic lattice.

What are giant covalent compounds?
Giant covalent compounds are ones in which are arranged in a giant strong structure because there are so many bonds involved.
