Ionic and Covalent Bonding


Please complete the following steps for your discussion post and response.

  • Compare (similarities) and contrast (differences) ionic and covalent bonding.
  • Make sure to discuss valence electrons and electronegativity of the atoms involved.
  • Give an example of a molecule formed with each type of bonding. In your example, give the chemical formula and give the IUPAC name of each molecule.
  • Finally, list 1 additional ionic and 1 additional covalent molecule, but don’t indicate which is ionic and which is covalent.

Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
