Explain the difference between a pure covalent bond, a polar covalent bond, and an ionic bond.
Solution 20 E Step 1 of 1 The difference between these three kind of bonds stands in the difference of electronegativity values belonging to the atoms bonded EN= Electronegativity( most electronegative atom) – Electronegativity (less electronegative atom) a) If EN> 1.9 we have an ionic bond. Electrons are transferred from the less electronegative atom to the one having the higher electronegativity value. b) If 0.4< EN < 1.9 we have a polar covalent bond. In this...
