Answer;Its positive charge is attracted by the negative charge of Cl–. Explanation; -the Ionic bond is a type of bond which involves complete transfer of electrons between the atoms. This type of bond generates two charges of charge of the ions, which is that of the cations (positively charged ions) and anions (negatively charged ions).-Ionic bond or electrovalent bond is then the result of the electrostatic attraction between these ions with the opposite charge in a chemical compound.
