Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Alex on Monday, September 7, 2009 at 8:59pm.

In ionic bonding, an electron is transferred from one nucleus to another.

What I don't understand, is how this "bonds" the two atoms together. Why don't the two atoms just bounce away and float off after the electron transfer takes place?
