In solid metals what kind of bonding takes place?explain with an example and a diagram

Expert Answer

Metallic solids are held together by a high density of shared, delocalized electrons, resulting in metallic bonding. Metallic bonding is the bonding between atoms within metals. It involves the delocalized sharing of free electrons among a lattice of metal atoms. Examples are copper and aluminum.

Metal bonds have at least one valence electron which they do not share with neighboring atoms, and they do not lose electrons to form ions. Instead the outer energy levels (atomic orbitals) of the metal atoms overlap. They are similar to covalent bonds. Not all metals exhibit metallic bonding.
