Question

Which of the following BEST describes the ionic bonds?

  1. Bond held together by a sea of electrons
  2. Bond of two ions of opposite charges held together by electrostatic forces
  3. Bond held together by the sharing of electrons
  4. Bond between hydrogen and an anion or polyatomic ion.

hintHint:

Two oppositely charged ions are involved.

The correct answer is: Bond of two ions of opposite charges held together by electrostatic forces


    • Ionic bonding is a type of chemical bonding.
    • It involves electrostatic attraction.
    • Two oppositely charged ions are involved.
    • Two ions involved are sharp with different electronegativities.
