Use the periodic table to identify what type of chemical bond is involved in each of these compounds: NaF,NO2, CBr4, and MgS. Explain your reasoning.

  • chemistry -

    NaF has a metal and nonmetal which means it is an ionic bond

    NO2 has 2 nometals so it is a covalent bond

    CBr has 2 nonmetals so covalent

    MgS has a metal and a nonmetal so ionic

    Just remember metals are on the left side of P table and nonmetals on the right.
