Ionic & Covalent Bonds
Transcript of Ionic & Covalent Bonds
These are two types of atomic bonds. They differ in their structure and properties.
Differences Between The Two
Covalent bonds polarity is low while the ionic bond is high. When it comes to shape covalent bond has definite shape and the ionic bond has no definite shape. Boiling and melting point of a covalent bond is low while ionic bonds boiling and melting point is high. At room temperature covalent bonds are liquid or gaseous and ionic bonds are solid.
Similarities Between The Two
Both have multiple atoms that come together and create a complex structure. They also have a neutral charge.
Consist of pairs of electrons shared by two atoms, and bind the atoms in a fixed orientation.
Held together by a strong attractions between negatively and positively charged ions.
