Does anybody understand Ionic and Covalent Bonding and Compounds and if you do could you post notes or links on it please! Thank you so much
Ionic bonding is when one atom loses an ion to another atom in order to become positively charged and have a full outer shell( either 2 or 8 ions). In a covalent bond two atoms share their outer ions so that both have a full outer shell too. An example of a covalent bond is hydrogen(H2). Hydrogen has only one ion on its outer shell so two hydrogen atoms join together to have a full outer shell of two. Hope this helps!
The compunds is just what is formed like the H2 is now a compound as it is made up of 2hydrogen atoms. Other examples of compounds are carbon dioxide - CO2 hydrochloric acid - HCL (hydrogen and chlorine) hope this helps!!
For compounds, it must be two or more elements chemically combined. (a molecule can be atoms of one element combined also)
