Does table salt form from sodium and chloride via hydrogen bonding?

No, table salt forms from sodium and chlorine via ionicbonding.Hydrogen bonding is technically not a form of bonding but a type of intermolecular force in compounds where hydrogen is bonded to nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine.

Why hydrogen bonding are not present in hcl?

Chlorine is not electronegative enough.

Is hydrogen bonding is a type of bonding or not?

Hydrogen bonding is a type of intermolecular force of attractionAdded:This is between molecules.It is not as strong as chemical bonding within molecules (intramolecular) though.

What type of bonding is in a molecule of chlorine?

In a chlorine molecule (Cl2) the bond is covalent.

What is the bond type for CH2Cl2?

CH2Cl2 has covalent bonding because Carbon, Hydrogen, and Chlorine are nonmetals, and nonmetals bond with other nonmetals covalently.

Why HCL do not form hydrogen bonds?

FONRemember this contraction. Florine, oxygen and nitrogenare the only elements in conjunction with hydrogen that can form hydrogen bonding. The electronegativity variance is important here and chlorine does not vary enough from hydrogen to form hydrogen bonding

What type of bonding is present in Hydrogen gas?

Covalent bonding between 2 hydrogen atoms, to form 1 hydrogen molecule H2 .

Does methane include a hydrogen bond?

I assume you mean intermolecular hydrogen bonding. No, because carbon is insufficiently electronegative. In contrast, carbon tetrachloride exhibits some hydrogen bonding because of the electronegativity of the chlorine atoms.

What type of bonding occurs in chlorine?

Chlorine usually bonds ionically by gaining one electron.

What type of bonding would be expected between H and F?

The type of bonding between a hydrogen atom and a fluorine atom is ionic bonding. The name of the compound that is formed is hydrogen fluoride, with the formula HF.

Why there is hydrogen bonding in water but not in hydro cloric acid although both have hydrogen?

FONFlorineOxygenNitrogenThe hydrogen must be bonded to one of these highly electronegative atoms to participate in hydrogen bonding.HClChlorine is not of this group shown above. Do you know why?

What type of bonds hold the bases together?

Hydrogen bonding exist b/w the nitrogenous bases hydrogen bonding is a wk bonding but during replication it is easy to break the bonding and open the starnds

What is the Predominant type of bonding?

Non covalent interactions such as Hydrogen bonding, ionic bonding are predominant in macromolecular structures such as proteins.

What type of intermolecular forces exist in alcohol?

Dispersion forces and Hydrogen bonding (possible dipole-dipole, which is induced due to hydrogen bonding)

Can H2o have a hydrogen bonding?

Yea,it has hydrogen bonding

Does CH3Cl have hydrogen bonding?

No. there is no hydrogen bonding in chloromethane

Is HCl an example of ionic or covalent bonding?

H-ClA single covalent bond between the hydrogen and the chlorine

What type of bonding holds methane together?

Methane is formed by covalent bonding between Carbon and Hydrogen.

What type of bond is hydrogen gas?

When bonding with other hydrogen atoms, it is a nonpolar covalent bond.

What type of bond does O-F has?

Hydrogen bond because of the hydrogen is combining with either nitrogen, oxygen or fluorine (FON) This type of bonding is called intermolecular bonding and is the strongest of the group.
