What type of bonding would you expect for the following substances: Calcium (Ca), Germanium (Ge), Barium Sulfide (BaS) and pure H 2 ? SOLUTION: For calcium the bonding is metallic because Ca has two valence electrons that can freely move within the calcium atoms. For germanium, the bonding is covalent because each Ge atom, with its 4 valence electrons, can form 4 covalent bonds with other Ge atoms. For BaS, the bonding is predominantly ionic (but with some covalent character) on the basis of the relative positions of Ba and S in the periodic table (large difference in electronegativities). For H 2 , the bonding is covalent within a single H 2 molecule (H to H), but between H 2 molecules, the bonding is Van Der Waals. PROBLEM 3:
