A chemical bond is a force of attraction between atoms that share or transfer electrons. When atoms of different elements bond together, they form a chemical compound, which is a new substance with a fixed ratio of elements. Types of bonds include ionic, covalent, and metallic bonds. The different types of bonds form compounds that have different properties.
We will be learning about ionic, covalent, and metallic bonding during the next few weeks.We will start with ionic bonding and then go on to covalent bonding. Watch the video in the link below and take notes if necessary, it should illustrate and help your understanding of the first two types of bonds.
