Generally, metals and nonmetals combine to form ionic compounds, and nonmetals combine to form molecules.
Metals and nonmetals tend to form ionic compounds by forming ionic bonds when they combine.
Metals combine with other metals to form alloy solutions, they can form solutions with other compounds by being dissolved in them, in most cases. As well, they form ionic bonds with nonmetals.
form an ionic bond (opposite charges attract)
Yes, they form an ionic bond, which is an easily formed bond.
Metals and nonmetals form ionic bonds.
Two no metals combine to form covalent bond. They have weaker interaction.
Both metals and nonmetals can form covalent bonds, but nonmetals do so more often.
They combine directly to form salts. E.g. lithium + fluorine -- > lithium fluoride if i am not mistaken..
Yes, copper does form compounds with nonmetals.
nonmetals; nonmetals and metals
Ionic. This is because it is part of the transition metals, which normally combine with nonmetals to form ionic bonds. A metal and a nonmetal form an ionic bond (generally), and two nonmetals tend to form covalent bonds (generally).
Metals and nonmetals generally form ionic bonds.
Generally, nonmetals combine to form molecular compounds.
Compounds between metals and nonmetals are predominantly ionic because there is a large difference in electronegativity between most metals and most nonmetals.
Metals and nonmetals form ionic compounds.
Metals and nonmetals form ionic compounds when chemically bonded.
Metals. The two most reactive groups of metals that readily form these bonds with nonmetals are the alkali metals and the alkaline earth metals. Groups 1A and 2A.
the metals with nonmetals
Nonmetals tend to form anions (negatively charged) because they gain electrons from the metals.
Do you mean 'why do metals and nonmetals react together?' Well here's the answer for the Q I think you requested: Not all metals and nonmetals react. Some nonmetals like the nobles gases (elements like helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon) are very unreactive and won't react with metals. But some metals and nonmetals react to form an Ionic compound because they are more stable once reacted to form a product.
Metals have a low electronegativity compared to nonmetals.
Nonmetals generally are more electronegative than metals, meaning that they have a stronger pull on their electrons - thus when they form ions, metals give up electrons (forming cations) and nonmetals take up electrons (forming anions).
Can both form molecules.
Nonmetals burning in oxygen form covalent type compounds, as compared to metals which form ionic compounds.
