We have a student in our house studying at home, and I want to help her somehow. Can someone answer and explain this question to me so I can help her with it too? Thanks in advance!
Is Carbon Dioxide An Ionic Bond Or A Covalent Bond?
To put it simply:
Ionic bonds occur between a metal and a non-metal, while covalent bonds occur between two non-metals.
Both carbon and oxygen that make up carbon dioxide are non-metals. So, their bond is considered a covalent bond.
