Chemical bonds form by the attraction the electrons of one atom to the proton of another atom. Common types of bonds include ionic, covalent and metallic bonds. The formation of the bond links the two atoms through the s... More »

Ionic, covalent and metallic bonds are all different types of chemical bonds. Chemical bonds are formed when a chemical compound is created through the joining of multiple atoms. Ionic bonds are formed when an electron m... More »

When chemical bonds in reacting molecules are broken during metabolism, energy is required, whereas chemical bonds in reacting molecules that form during metabolism will actually exert energy. During metabolism, the rela... More »

Chemical energy is a type of energy that is stored in the bonds that form between different chemical compounds. These bonds exist between different types of atoms and molecules. The energy that is stored inside of these ... More » Science Chemistry

Chemical reactions occur when two molecules collide with each other in a certain orientation and amount of force, which causes a chemical change due to the breaking and forming of the bonds between the atoms. Bonds are b... More »

The major defining feature of metals is that electrons flow relatively freely between atoms in any object composed of two or more metal atoms, whereas electrons around nonmetals are more tightly bound to their respective... More »

Atoms form bonds with other atoms because of the electrostatic attraction between positively-charged protons and negatively-charged electrons. When this force of attraction brings atoms together to form substances contai... More »
