As a theoretical physicist, I have always studied the fundamental forces of nature. While my son was taking general chemistry in college, his freshman year, I took a glance at the text book which he was using. In there was described most of what we learn in high school and college regarding general chemistry. When I flipped through to sections regarding ionic bonding I decided to delve further. What was written in the book and what is accepted in Chemistry today is that ionic bonds are the result of Coulomb's force between opposing charges.
