  • Covalent Bonding
    • The atoms of nonmetals need to gain electrons to achieve stable electronic structures.
      • They do this by sharing electrons with other atoms.
        • Each shared pair of electrons strongly attract forming the bond.
          • These atoms that are held together by this bond are called molecules.
    • When elements join together by sharing electrons.
    • Atoms of group 7 need to gain one electron so form one single bond. Atoms in group 5 form 3 bonds and so on and so forth.
