Classify these compounds as ionic or molecular.

SO2               NCl3               MgS               CuO


We’re being asked to classify the given compounds as ionic or molecular.

Let’s first define an ionic and molecular bond:

Ionic Bond

involves the transferring of an electron from one element to another element
positively charged ion + negatively charged ion

metal(or polyatomic ion) + nonmetal(or polyatomic ion)
