What is ionic bonding?
When atoms gain or lose electrons to from ions
1 of 8
Which ions attract?
Positive and negative
2 of 8
What do these ions do when they attract?
Form ionic bonds
3 of 8
How many electrons do atoms want to lose?
One to two
4 of 8
Is the energy level on the outer shell high or low?
High
5 of 8
What happens after this?
They have a full shell and this means they have the same electronic structure as a noble gas
6 of 8
Atoms with nearly full outer shells want to what?
Gain an extra one or two electrons to fill up the shell
7 of 8
What so they do when they want another electron?
They take 1-2 electrons from an atom that wants to lose some
