4/18/2019 Today we will be discussing Covalent Bonding
Covalent Bonding is a chemical bond that occurs because of a sharing of electrons
Water (H20) is an example a covalent bond consisting of 2 hydrogens and 1 oxygen, they help make the other "feel like a noble gas" by sharing electrons with each other to achieve a full outer shell
The Water Molecule is constructed by the 2 Hydrogen Atoms sharing their electrons with the Oxygen atom to get a full outer shell
Covalent bonds are named by using prefixes to indicate how many atoms of each element are shown in the formula. . The prefixes used on the first element are mono-, di-, tri-, tetra-, penta-, hexa- etc. The ending of the last element is changed to -ide.
