which bond

Postby josmit_4D » Sat Nov 02, 2019 6:33 pm

How do you determine which type of bond it is based on electronegativity?

If the electronegativity difference is greater than 2, it is an ionic bond. If it is less than 1.5 it is a covalent bond.

If we're being super specific, if the electronegativity difference is <2 it is a polar covalent bond and if the electronegativity difference is 0 it is a covalent bond. This designates if it's a bond shared between two of the same element ie C-C (covalent) or different elements ie C-H (polar covalent).

If the electronegativity difference is between 1.5 and 2 then it is a mix of the two bonds.

If the electronegativity difference between the two elements is greater than or equal to 2.5 then it is a ionic bond, if the difference is equal to or below 1.5 it is a covalent bond. Basically the greater the difference in electronegativity the more pull on electrons one element will have over the other, meaning the electrons wont be shared evenly.
