  • This is the first day at Electron Elementary. Proton Elementary is not far from here!
  • CI
  • Hi I am Nick Nitrogen. I am also another nonmetal.I am 5 years old and have 5 valence electrons.
  • N
  • One of the characteristics about polyatomic ions are how the oxidation number of a polyatomic ion is its charge.
  • CI
  • Hi I'm Clint Chlorine.I am a Nonmetal!
  • We can make a ionic bond!
  • N
  • The three types of chemical bonds are ionic, covalent, and polyatomic.
  • What exactly are the three types of chemicals bonds?
  • CI
  • N
  • Oh so I understand, isnt a ionic bond where its the attraction between two oppisitley charged ions?
  • Yes, also another bond which is the covalent bond is a chemical bond formed when two atoms share electrons.
  • Oh yeah, and the third type of bond is the polyatomic bond, is the combination of ionic and covalent bonds.
  • CI
  • N
  • Covalent bonds and ionic bonds have different characteristics!
  • Some of the characteristics about ionic bonds are high melting points and hard but brittle.
  • Some of the characteristics of covalent compounds are usually low melting points and boiling points.
  • CI
  • N
  • The way you determine a polyatomic ion is it at least has 2 nonmetals and 1 metal
  • The way you determine a ionic bond is a nonmetal will gain valence electrons (usually more than 4) and the metals will lose valence electrons ( usually less than 4) .
  • The way you determine a covalent bond is the nonmetal and metal share electrons.
  • CI
