Learning Objective

In this lesson we will learn about the different types of chemical bonds that can exist between atoms and the different types of chemical structures atoms can form.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this lesson you will be able to:

  • Describe metallic, ionic and covalent bonding.

  • Describe properties of monatomic, metallic, ionic, covalent molecular and covalent network structures.

  • Identify the type of chemical bonding in different elements and compounds.

  • Explain how the type of bonding and structures an element forms is related to its location on the periodic table.
