What Is Atomic Bond
This section provides a quick introduction on what is atomic bond that ties atoms together to form molecules.
What Is Atomic Bond?
Atomic Bond is a physical process that
ties atoms together to form a molecule.
There are 3 primary types of atomic bonds that involve
the outer electrons of atoms.
- Ionic Bond -
Electrons can be transferred from one atom to another.
For example, Sodium (Na) atom transfers one electron to Chlorine (Cl) atom to form
an Ionic Bond for Salt (NaCl) molecule.
- Covalent Bond -
Two atoms share pairs of outermost electrons with each other.
For example, 2 Oxygen atoms shares a pair of electrons to form
- Metallic Bond -
Electrons are freely float around and shared by all atoms in a material.
