1

What are the four types of bond?

Covalent Molecular
Covalent Network
Ionic Bonding
Metallic Bonding

2

What is the definition of a covalent bond?

Covalent bonds are bonds of 2 or more non-metal elements only

3

How do covalent bonds work?

The positively charged nuclei attract the negatively charged electrons of the other atom. This creates a tug-of-war effect.

4

What are the 7 diatomic elements?

Iodine
Bromine
Chlorine
Fluorine
Oxygen
Nitrogen
Hydrogen

5

What does it mean to say that an atom is diatomic?

Diatomic atoms are 2 atoms of the same element who bond together to become stable

6

What is the definition of an Ionic Bond?

An ionic bond is a bond between metal and non-metal atoms

7

In Ionic bonds, where do the unpaired electrons go to and why?

In Ionic bonds, electrons move from the metal to the non-metal because non-metals have a strong attraction power and metals have weak attraction powers
