Molecular substances contain groups of atoms that are held together by strong bonds called covalent bonds. The number of atoms of each element bonded together in a simple molecule is shown by its molecular formula.

Covalent bonds are usually formed between non-metals and are produced by sharing pairs of electrons. By forming the bond, the atoms become more stable because they can use the shared electrons to complete their outer electron shells.
