Covalent Compounds

Properties:


  • Low melting and boiling points
  • Brittle solid forms
  • Poor electrical and thermal conductivity
Examples:



  • An example of a nonpolar covalent bond would be 2 hydrogen atoms because they both equally share the electrons
  • Another example is 2 chlorine atoms because they also both equally share the electrons
Diatomic Molecules:



  • Diatomic molecules are molecules that are composed of 2 atoms
  • The elements are Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Fluorine, Oxygen, Iodine, Chlorine, and Bromine
  • The memory device is: BrINClHOF
