Chlorine can form both ionic and covalent bonds. For example:-
Covalent bond exists between a carbon atom and a chlorine atom.
An ionic bond
An ionic bond.
An ionic bond. A metal bonding with a non-metal will always give you an ionic bond.
They form an ionic bond.
Carbon and Chlorine form polarized covalent bonds
Helium doesn't form any kind of chemical bond. Every atom has its specialty, they don't form every type of bond.
Calcium and chlorine form a salt, calcium chloride, which has ionic bonds.
Sodium chloride (NaCl) does not react with chlorine. The bond between sodium and chlorine atoms to form sodium chloride is ionic. The sodium ion loses one electron to the chlorine atom, forming a Na+ ion and a Cl- ion. The electrostatic attraction between the two oppositely charged ions forms the ionic bond.
An ionic bond will form. Covalent bond, however, is when the two atoms share electrons when they bond.
Chlorine can form both ionic and covalent bonds, with metals and non-metals respectively.
Theoretically, in extreme conditions, every atom can form every type of bonds. Generally, atoms tend to bond each other by releasing the most possible energy. The lower the energy of the bond is the more stable.
The kind of bond made between a carbon and hydrogen atom is a covalent bond.
Sodium chloride has ionic bonds.
Sodium and Chlorine form an ionic bond. The Sodium(Na+) is the cation which gives one electron to the anion Chlorine(Cl-) which accepts the electron. This ionic bond is weak however, and it's usually soluble in water.
A covalent bond.
