Part A. When two hydrogen atoms approach each other to form a chemical bond, different interactions occur between the atoms. Identify the correct statements with respect to the interactions involved in the formation of chemical bond.
Check all that apply.
Chemical bonds hold atoms together in molecules. A chemical bond is a strong electrostatic attraction between two or more atoms. It is formed either by a transfer of electrons or by a sharing of electrons such that each participating atom approaches a near-noble-gas configuration. A bond formed by a transfer of electrons is called an ionic bond. A bond formed by a sharing of electrons is called a covalent bond. A coordinate covalent bond is formed when an electron-rich atom donates a pair of electrons to an electron-deficient atom.
