Covalent Bonding:
Forms when atoms share one or more pairs of electrons between nonmetals. Covalent bonds electrons are not sent from one atom to another, they are shared by both atoms. Non polar covalent bonds occur when electrons are equally attracted to the positive nucleus of each atom. Non polar covalent bonds occur when you bond two of the same atoms together. Polar covalent bonds occur when the shared electrons are attracted to the nucleus of one atom more than the other. Polar covalent bonds occur when two different atoms share electrons. I am a nonmetal so I can create a covalent bond. I would like to bond with some of these elements Hydrogen, Florine, Chlorine, and Bromine. Because they are all nonmetals and also because they just need one more valence electron to form an eight valence electron just like I do.

Ionic Bonding: First of all if you are a plus(+) or a minus(-) that makes you an ion. If your elemnet has 3 or less in its outer energy level then you can just shoot your outer atoms into space for someone that has more than 5 keeps their remaining electrons and takes in how many they need from the extra ones that were shot into space, but if your in group 14 then you can not make an ionic bond because you are nutral and you can not make up your mind so usually you just become +4. A metallic bond is a bond formed by the attraction between positivly charged metal ions and the electron around them. Electrons move freely between metal atoms. This model explains why metals: conduct electricity, conduct heat, and are flexible. How to make an ion. If an atom loses an electon then it becomes a positive(+), and if it is positive it's a cation and cations equal metals. If an atom gains an electron then it is a negative(-), and if it is negative it is an anion and anions equal non-metals.
