The Nature of Bonding: When Atoms Come Together

An introduction to ionic and nonpolar covalent bonding.

Vocabulary from the Video

Bond - The transfer or sharing of electrons between two atoms in order for each atom to obtain a more stable electron configuration

Ionic Bond - The resulting electrostatic force that holds together charged atoms following a transfer of electrons.

Ion - A charged species

Anion - a negatively charged ion

Cation - a postiviely charged ion
