The covalent bonding is caused by themutual electrical attraction between thetwo positive nuclei of the two atoms of the bond, and the electrons between them.4.
single covalent bond
is a sharing of
1 pair of electrons
, two pairs of sharedelectrons between the same two atomsgives a double bond and it is possible fortwo atoms to share 3 pairs of electronsand give a triple bond.
