Consider the following element combinations. Classify the bonds formed between each pair as ionic, polar covalent, or nonpolar covalent qualitatively based solely on each element's position on the periodic table? Do not conduct calculations.
Something worth knowing about deciding between nonpolar and polar is that only two of the same element can form an ideally nonpolar bond.
With this in mind, the
Bonds between a metal and a nonmetal are almost always considered "ionic", so the
And therefore, the remaining binary compounds (
