|Class 10 Chemistry Carbon and Its Compounds||Bonding in Hydrogen|
Bonding in Hydrogen:
The atomic number of hydrogen is 1 and has only one electron in its K shell.
This shell needs to either acquire or lose an electron to attain noble gas configuration of helium.
Due to this reason two hydrogen atoms share their outermost electrons leading to the formation of a molecule of hydrogen, H2.
The shared pair of electrons between the hydrogen atoms constitutes a single bond between them and is also represented by a line between the two atoms.
