Question Description

Why do metals and non-metals tend to bond ionically?

Tutor Answer

School: Purdue University

Metals tend to bond with non-metals ionically because metal tend to lose electrons and they become positive ions. And non-metals tend to gain electrons and they become negative ions. So it is already clear that positive and negative ions attract and when they attract, they form an ionic bond.................!!!!
