Identify the correct option regarding the strength of ionic bond and covalent bond.
Ionic bond is stronger than Covalent bond
Ionic bond is weaker than Covalent bond
Ionic and Covalent bonds are equally stronger
The correct option is A Ionic bond is stronger than Covalent bond Ionic bond is formed when the positive and negative ions come together. The strong electrostatic forces of attraction between these positive and negative ions holds the ions together firmly making the bond stronger. The molecules formed by covalent bonds have weaker forces involving sharing of electrons.
