PRINT NAME ________________________ INTRODUCTION TO MATERIAL SCIENCE MSE-150 QUIZ 2 (1 point each) True or False Ionic bonding is a directional primary bond resulting from electrostatic forces. Covalent bonding is a directional primary bond resulting from sharing of delocalized valence electrons. Anions are typically larger than cations. The atomic packing factor (APF) of the face centered cubic (FCC) structure is the same as the APF of the hexagonal close packed structure (HCP). The difference between the FCC and HCP structures is the stacking sequence of the close-packed planes where FCC is ABCABC and HCP is ABAB. As the difference in the electronegativities between the elements in a ceramic compound increases the bond character is more covalent than ionic. Polymers typically contain both covalent and secondary bonding.
