Structure and Bonding- Simple Covalent

HideShow resource information
Give an example of a simple covalent molecule?
An example of a simple covalent molecule is water
1 of 5
What is the melting point of this simple covalent molecule?
(Water) Lower than a giant covalent structure as there aren't as many strong bonds
2 of 5
Does this simple covalent molecule conduct electricity?
(Water) No as it doesn't contain impurities such as salt which do
3 of 5
How hard is this simple covalent molecule?
(Water) Not as hard as giant as it's smaller meaning it has less bonds. Therefore, less energy is needed to break the bonds
4 of 5
How is this simple covalent structure formed?
(Water) A shared pair of electrons between two non-metals
