Magnesium nitrate contains chemical bonds that are ?
1. Covalent Only
2. Ionic Only
3. Both Covalent And Ionic
4. Neither Covalent Nor Ionic
The answer is 3, but I don't know why. How does NO3 even bond?

The bonds between Mg^+2 and NO3^- ions are considered ionic. The N-O bonds of the nitrate are covalent bonds.
