Chemical Bond

Chemical bond is the attraction between two or more atoms that allows the formation of chemical substances. The formation of bond is due to electronmagnetic force of attraction between opposite charges.

There are three types of Chemical bond.

They are :

1. Ionic bond
2. Covalent bond
3. Polar covalent bond
