  • Sometimes atoms make covalent bonds by sharing electrons with other atoms. This way both atoms feel that they have a full outer shell.
  • Each covalent bond provides one extra shared electron for each atom.
  • Each atom involved makes enough covalent bonds to fill up its outer shell.
  • The atoms bond due to the electrostatic attraction between the positive nuclei and the negative electrons shared between them.
