The next intramolecular bond is ionic bonds. Ionic bonds make a complete transfer of valence electrons between atoms. Occurs between a nonmetal and metal. The metal loses electrons being a cation and nonmetals gain electrons being a negatively charged anion. The END of ionic is 2.0 to 4.0
What is the END of ionic?
NaCl Na is sodium in the periodic table and is a metal; whereas Cl is chlorine and a nonmetal. Since ionic bonds contain metals and nonmetals this is why it is ionic.
Could you give us an example of ionic bonds? I get it now.
The final intramolecular bond is the metallic bond. Metallic bonds are among metal bonds. Metals tend to have a high melting point and boiling point. Conducts electricity because of freely moving electrons. With electrons flowing around the atom it creates a sea of mobile electrons. Yes there are three.
So there are three types of intramolecular bonds? Also metal is very useful for electricity, malleability, and ductility.
An example of metallic bonds is Cu, Al, and Au. They can be found in the periodic table under Alkali metals and transitional metals.
Where can you find metallic bonds in the periodic table and can you give an example?
Quick summary there are three types of intramolecular bonds, which are covalent, ionic, and metallic bonds. Covalent bonds consist of polar and nonpolar. Polar is asymmetrical and nonpolar are symmetrical. Metallic bonds are just metals. Ionic bonds are a combing of metal and nonmetal elements.
Thank you, professor, you really helped us a lot. Time to work on our project.
