Certain atoms have a higher electronegativity
Do the atoms share equally?
Non-Polar = evenly shared
Two oxygen atoms join to be an oxygen molecule - both have the same electronegativity which
means they pull on the electrons the same amount
Orbitals - regions for atoms that can help influence how an atom interacts with other atoms
- specific regions that are created around the nucleus. Take up three dimensional
- our existence was dependant on the reactions of atoms.
