wait you did not really explain to me what is covalent bonding.
sodium chloride searched and they found that covalent bonds happens when 2 nonmetals bond. and both of his siblings are nonmetals.
Wait before we enter i read something about electronegativity
yup i read about too and i think i remember
They also found out about valence electrons: an outer shell electron that is associated with an atom, and it can participate in the formation of a chemical bond if the outer shell is not closed, in a cov. bond, both atoms in the bond contribute one valence elec. in order to form a shared pair
it's OK then POLAR covalent bond it is
bonding occurs when pairs of electrons are shared by atoms. Atoms will covalently bond with other atoms in order to gain more stability, which is gained by forming a full electron shell. By sharing their outermost valence electrons, atoms can fill up their outer electron shell and gain stability.
hey guys i know what you can do yo be stable
electronegevity: afects the shring in covalent bonding. the more equal the sharing the stronger the bond. if the electronegativities of the 2 atoms are completely the same, the bond formed will be pure covalent bond.
Sodium said: hydrogean has an electronegativity of 2.1 and chlorine is 3.0 so the electron pair that is bonding HCI went towards the chlorine atom because it has a larger elctroneg. value. this bond will now be called polar covalent bond.
they entered the house and chloride went to his sibling's room to tell them the great news
