Ionic and covalent bonding animation
Ionic bonding formed when one atom has sufficient strength of attraction to remove ion from the other atom. Covalent bonding occurs when neither atom has sufficient strength to remove the other atom's electron. They would instead share electrons to form stable configurations of electrons.
Ionic and covalent bonding example
Sodium and chlorine are elements that bound ionically creating sodium chloride salt. Hydrogen and oxygen are elements that create water in covalent bonding.
