Atomic Bonding Basics — Lesson 1

When talking about atomic bonds, we need to start with atoms themselves. The Periodic Table serves as a toolbox, of sorts, to materials scientists and engineers.

But how do these atoms bond together? This lesson will go through three primary bonds and two secondary bonds commonly found in materials. Use the guided student note sheet to follow along with the video.
