ionic bonding

HideShow resource information
How does an Atom become an Ion?
by losing or gaining the right amount of electrons to give it a full outer shell and give it the arangment of a noble gas
1 of 5
Write the Balanced Equation for the reaction between Sodium and Chlorine.
sodium + chlorine --> sodium chloride. // 2Na(s) + Cl2(g) --> 2NaCl(s)
2 of 5
What is an Ionic Bond?
- The electrostatic force of attraction between the oppositely charged ions (swapping electrons)
3 of 5
What type of Structure do Ionic Compounds form?
the metal will lose electrons to form a positive ion and the non-metal will gain electrons to form a negative ion. It will form a giant structure
4 of 5
What is the connection between an Ion and a Noble Gas?
The Electron Structures of Ions and Noble Gases are the Same (zero)
