HideShow resource information
Chemical Bonding
When two or more elements react together compounds are formed. They are formed either by sharing or transferring electrons from the outer shell to achieve a stable electronic configuration .

what is covalent bonding?
When non-metals atoms joined together by sharing electrons.

what is ionic bonding?
the oppositely charged ions attract each other. non-metals+metals=ionic bonding

Ionic Bonding
When metal atoms react with non-metal atoms they produce ionic compounds.The non-metal atoms gains electrons to form negative ions. The metal atoms loses electrons to form positive ions.
