It affects in different ways...


Ionic bonding promotes the creation of a soluble salt. and high melting and boiling points

Covalent bonding promotes formation of molecules.

Polar covalent bonding promotes solubility in polar water

Metallic bonding promotes malleability, ductility, and ability to conduct heat and electric current.

Non polar covalent bonding promotes movement toward the gaseous state.

Polar covalent bonding promotes movement toward liquid state, high boiling points and melting points
