Transcript of Covalent Bonding
Both are nonmetals Example You can use this table to find the difference of electronegativity and determine whether the bond is covalent or ionic.
If the difference in the electronegativity values is 1.8 or below, the bond is covalent. To determine if fluorine and iodine have a covalent bond, you find the electronegativity given in the previous picture.
Fluorine (F) has the electronegativity of 3.98 and iodine (I) has 2.66.
Therefore the bond between F and I is covalent.
Oxygen with an electronegativity value of 3.44 while vanadium has 1.63.
Therefore the bond of oxygen and vanadium is not covalent because the difference of the electronegativities is about 1.8. Example Example of a Lewis Structure Showing Electron Sharing Hydrogen each give one electron to share between the two.
