IONIC BONDING
Is an attraction between metal cations and non-metal anions. An electrostatic force of attraction between oppositely charged ions.
1 of 5
METALS
Metals will transfer their outer electrons to non-metals so that we can make cations (positive) and anions (negative).
2 of 5
COVALENT BONDING
These are non-metals. Some atoms do not lose or gain electrons to make ions and ionic bonds. Instead, they share electrons to make full outer shells and a bond which we call a covalent bond.
3 of 5
POLYMERS
A substance made from very large molecules made up of many repeating units, for example; poly(ethene)
4 of 5
INTERMOLECULAR FORCES
The attraction between the individual molecules in a covalently bonded substance. These can be weak or strong.
