WHAT IS COVALENT BOND? WHY THEY HAVE HIGH MELTING AND BOLING POINT

Asked by Kaustubh Punit | 1st Nov, 2013, 08:09: PM

Expert Answer:

The chemical bond that is formed between two combining atoms by mutual sharing of one or more pairs of electrons is called a covalent bond and the compound formed due to this bond is called a covalent compound.
Covalent compounds are volatile, with low boiling and melting points because they have weak forces of attraction between the binding molecules. Thus less energy is required to break the force of bonding.
