2.1 The Ions That Elements Form Ionic bond – lowest energy can be achieved by complete transfer of one or more electrons Covalent bond – lowest energy can be achieved by sharing electrons Metallic bond – large number of cations are held together by a sea of electrons Valence electrons are what changes the energies in the forming of bonds, so bond formation depends on electronic structures of atoms Ionic solid – cations and anions stacked together…large numbers of oppositely
