4.2.2 Describe how the covalent bond is formed via electron sharing IB Chemistry SL

Atoms may share electrons to obtain a full outer shell with other atoms. The resulting molecules are more stable. Atoms may share one electron each = covalent bond. Sharing 2 each is a double bond, 3 each is a triple bond. If one atom shares 2 electrons and the other shares none that is called a dative (or coordinate) covalent bond.The hydronium ion, ammonium ion and carbon monoxide all contain a dative covalent bond.Pyro's arm grew back at respawn!
