Classify different types of atomic bonds.
When atoms bond together, they create elements. The different types of bonds (ionic and covalent, polar and non-polar) have an impact on the elements they create. Understanding the types of bonds that create things can help us understand those things themselves.
What You’ll Learn to Do
- Describe the characteristics of ionic bonds and identify common ions.
- Describe the characteristics of covalent bonds and differentiate between polar and non-polar bonds.
