Chemistry - bonding

Ionic bonding is between...
Metal and non-metal
1 of 11
Metal ___ (less electrons on outer shell) electrons and none metal ___ electrons (more electrons on outer shell)
Metal loses. Non metal gains
2 of 11
Ionic compounds have a gaint i____ l____ structure
giant ionic lattice
3 of 11
there are very ___ electrostatic forces of attraction between the oppositely charged ions
Strong
4 of 11
They all have __ melting/boiling points
High
5 of 11
Why?
strong forces between bonds so takes a lot of energy to break them
6 of 11
Can a solid ionic compounds conduct electricity? Why?
No as ions aren't free to move so can't carry current through the compound
7 of 11
What about when the compound is melted? Why?
ions are free to move in the solution, so they can conduct electricity.
8 of 11
What does convalent bonding occur between?
Non-metals
9 of 11
The non-metals ___ electrons to make covalent bonds
Share/donate
10 of 11
