        Types of Chemical Bonds | Crash Course Chemistry

        Atoms are a lot like us - we call their relationships "bonds," and there are many different types. In this video, you will learn that chemical bonds form in order to minimize the energy difference between two atoms or ions; that those chemical bonds may be covalent if atoms share electrons, and that covalent bonds can share those electrons evenly or unevenly; that bonds can also be ionic if the electrons are transferred instead of shared: and how to calculate the energy transferred in an ionic bond using Coulomb's Law.
