If both atoms in a covalent bond havehigh electronegativities, like nonmetals, the atoms will share electrons to satisfy the octet rule – eight electrons inthesandporbitals of the valence level. Some atoms, like beryllium, Be, and boron, B, can form stablecompounds with incomplete octets of electrons. Nitrogen and hydrogen can do the same.It is difficult to visualize the true geometry of a covalent molecule when we draw in two dimensions on paper.
