Ionic bonding is the type of bonding that occurs when metals combine with non-metals. During this type of bonding, electrons are transferred from metal atoms to non-metal atoms to form compounds. The metal atoms form positive ions, and the non-metal atoms form negative ions. How well will you do on this quiz?
