Hi! I'm Cheyanne! People have been asking me lately, what are ionic and covalent bonds? Well, I'm here to explain it!
What are ionic and covalent bonds?
Ionic bonds are complete transfers between atoms. It's a type of chemical bond that generates two negatively charged electrons.
A covalent bond is a chemical link between two atoms where the electron pairs are shared between them.
An example of an ionic bond is NaCl, which is sodium chloride or salt. It's considered an ionic bond because the elements in this bond combines to make an ion, therefore, making it an ionic bond.
