## anonymous one year ago Which statement describes a step in the formation of an ionic bond? An attraction occurs between two ions that have the same charge. A metal atom forms a cation, and a nonmetal atom forms an anion. A more electronegative atom transfers electrons to a less electronegative atom. A metal pulls electrons from another metal and produces a force of attraction.

Ionic bond is a bond which is formed due to a positively charged cation and negatively charged anion. For example : $$\rm Na^{+}Cl^{-}$$ we do not mention the signs. here Na that is sodium is positively charged and Cl that is chlorine is negatively charged. The bond formed between the two is a ionic bond.
