The Covalent Bond REMEMBER : Ionic bond is formed by TRANSFER of electron(s) to unfilled orbital of lower energy Electrons can also be stabilized by interacting with another positive charge (nucleus is a great source of positive charge) Atoms can acquire a noble gas configuration (stable) by sharing electrons with another atom COVALENT BOND – bond formed by sharing of electrons; usually between nonmetals ( ∆χ is small)

Bond Polarity Bond polarity is best described by ∆ χ ∆ χ = 0 ; covalent bond (e - shared equally, H 2 , N 2 , Cl 2 ) ∆ χ small ; polar covalent bond (atom with larger χ becomes e - rich, results in bond dipole, HCl, H 2 O, CH 4 , NH 3 ) ∆ χ large ; ionic bond (e - transferred to atom with larger χ , NaCl, Al(NO 3 ) 3 , NH 4 Cl)
