Covalent Bond
There are two diffrent types of covelant bonds nonpolar and polar. Nonpolar covalent bonds occur when electrons are equally attracted to the positive nucleus of each atom. Nonpolar bonds also occur when you bond two of the same atom together. Polar covalent bonds occur when the shared electrons are attracted to the nucleus of one atom more than the other. Polar Bonds also occur when two diffrent atoms share electrons.I can not form this bond.

Ionic Bonding
1,2or 3 outer energy levels usually lose electrons to become positive ions called cations and are metal types of elements.Elements with 5,6, or 7 outer energy level electrons usually gain electron and become negitivly charged ions called anions and are non-metal types of elements. I can form an ionic bond with any of the non-metals in group 16.

Metallic Bonding
A metallic bond is a bond formed by the attraction between positively charged metal ions and the electrons around them. Electrons move freely
between metal atoms. They conduct heat electricity and are flexable. The atoms in a metallic bond are bonded together. The electorns in a metallic bond move and switch paces every so often. I can form this bond with a metal in group 6 which is Po. i can also form with two of the metals in group 3.

Who Can I Bond With
I can make a metallic bond and an ionic bond. I can form ionic bonds with all the non-metals in group 16. I can form metallic bonds with the metal element Po in group 16. I can also form with two of the elements in group 3.

On another element's page (created by another student), click edit the page and type in this section only. Add a blank line under this area and explain in a sentence or two who you are (element and class period - hydrogen3), what type of bond you would form with the element on this page, and why you would form a bond with this element. After you have typed your sentence, highlight your element name (hydrogen3) and click the "Insert Link" button from the chase is gay toolbar (Globe with a chain at the bottom). Make sure that the link text and the page name are your element name and period number. Do not change them or put a space in between them. Click "OK" and now "Save" the page. Click on your element name to link back to your element's page. If your page does not appear, ask for assistance and go back and redo the link on this section.ew page here.
