Is the element Ba-O an ionic bond or a covalent bond?

Ionic


Would BA and O form a polar covalent bond?

The electronegativity difference between Ba (EN 0.89) and oxygen (EN 3.44) is high and you would expect bonds to be ionic. Barium oxide is ionic.

What bond does the element Ba-O have covalent or ionic?

You should check the electronegativity values of Ba and O. The difference between these two will tell you what type of bond you are dealing with. A table of these values are found in a standard chemistry textbook. However, as a rule of thumb, alkali and earth-alkali metals such as Ba, Ce, Na etc. very often form ionic bonds. However, you should NEVER refer to something like Ba-O or NaCl or H2O as an element! Elements are the fundamental building blocks, that is, only one element, like Fe (iron). Two or more elements form a chemical substance.

Is BaO covalent?

No. One way to tell is that Ba and O are on opposite sides of the periodic table, and Ba is a metal and O is a nonmetal. We can also determine the difference in electronegativity. A difference of >1.6 is generally considered as ionic. The electronegativity of Ba is 0.89 and of O is 3.44. 3.44 - 0.89 = 2.55, so the bond is ionic.
