Question
Chapter 1, Problem 4PP
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

It is to be decided whether the bond in each of the given compound is ionic or covalent.

Concept introduction:

A chemical bond in the Lewis model illustrates the sharing or transfer of valence electrons to acquire a stable configuration (octet) for the bonding atoms.

While forming chemical bonds, if electrons are transferred then the bond is ionic and if electrons are shared then the bond is covalent.

In general, bond between a metal and nonmetal is ionic in nature and bond between two nonmetal atoms is covalent in nature.
