what is ionic bond

Asked by avinash_jha | 7th Nov, 2010, 12:00: AM

Expert Answer:

Electrons are completely transferred from one atom to another. In the process of either losing or gaining negatively charged electrons, the reacting atoms form ions. The oppositely charged ions are attracted to each other by electrostatic forces, which are the basis of the ionic bond.
