what type of bond does sodium atom forms with other atoms?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The bond which is formed by equal sharing of electrons is known as Non-polar covalent bond.

The bond which is formed by unequal sharing of electrons is known as polar covalent bond.

The bond formed by complete transfer of electrons in between the two atoms is known as ionic bond.

Step 2

As sodium is an electropositive element so it will form an ionic bond by transferring its electron with another element or an atom.

For example: In NaCl molecu...
