Covalent bonding 

- a covalent bond is formed when two atoms share a pair of electrons

- covalent bonding occurs in most non-metal elements, and in compounds formed between non-metals

Covalent bonds 

- when non-metal atoms bond together, they share pairs of electrons to make covalent bonds 

- the positively charged nuclei of the bonded atoms are attracted to the shared pair of electrons by electrostatic forces making these bonds very strong
