results from the electrical attraction between cations and anions (positive and negative atoms) ionic compounds
results from the sharing of electron pairs between two atoms covalent bonds
results from the attraction between metal atoms and the surrounding sea of electrons metallic bonds
an atom or group of bonded atoms that has a positive or negative charge ion
lose electrons = _________ ion positive
gain electrons = ________ ion negative
number of electrons an element loses or gains oxidation number
metals losing
nonmetals gaining
metals and positive ions are first
nonmetals and negative ions are second
ionic compounds are formed with a net charge of zero
more than one element that is already bonded with an overall charge polyatomic ions
_________ go around polyatomics that have more than one group parenthesis
