Covalent Bonding

This resource provides an interactive activity demonstrating how when two nuclei are close enough, electrons move around both of them and form a covalent bond. The activity uses colors to illustrate the formation of the bond. An interactive diagram is presented allowing students to experiment and watch a simulation of the result.
