A covalent bond is the connection of different elements through the sharing of electrons.

Covalent Bonding

Concept #1: Covalent Bonding

Concept #2: Duet Rule and Octet Rule

In order to obtain the electron configuration of noble gases, Hydrogen follows the duet rule while other non-metals follow the octet rule.

Example #1: Which of these elements is unlikely to form covalent bonds?

Concept #3: Covalent Compound Properties

Example #2: Which of the following compounds is expected to have the lowest boiling point?
