This is the first day at Electron Elementary. Proton Elementary is not far from here!
Hi I am Nick Nitrogen. I am also another nonmetal.I am 5 years old and have 5 valence electrons.
One of the characteristics about polyatomic ions are how the oxidation number of a polyatomic ion is its charge.
Hi I'm Clint Chlorine.I am a Nonmetal!
We can make a ionic bond!
The three types of chemical bonds are ionic, covalent, and polyatomic.
What exactly are the three types of chemicals bonds?
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.
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.
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.
