Today we will be learning about the different types of bonds and how they work.
Welcome everyone to today's Chemistry class.
There are three different types of bonds ionic, metallic, and covenant bonds. These all help stabilize compounds. All of these use valence electrons only.
The first type of bonding ionic. Ionic bonding happen between metal and nonmetals. The Metal loses electrons, gets smaller and becomes positively charged. On the other hand, the nonmetal gains electrons, gets bigger and becomes negatively charged.
I wish that I could lose weight that easily.
Another type of bonding is metallic bonding. Here, these electrons freely flow between one type of metallic element. When combined, the bond forms a metal that, depending on the bonding strength, can see how malleable and ductile that particular metal is.
The final type of bonding is covalent. Here two nonmetal share electrons. There are three types of covalent bonds. These are single, double, and triple bonds. The names just show how many bonds are connected between a pair of nonmetal elements.
Thank you for coming to today's class, hopefully you learned something new. I recommend memorizing this because we have a test tomorrow on this.
