Why would 2 Hydrogen atoms need to share electrons?

An atom is much more stable with 2 electrons in its first shell. Hydrogen has only 1 electron, so two atoms of hydrogen combine to form a H2 molecule, which enables each of th

What happens if a calcium atom loses an electron to a chlorine atom?

Because calcium has 2 valence electrons, it needs to get rid of them to have a stable noble gas conformation. Chlorine atom has 7 VE and only needs to gain one electron to hav

What happens sodium atom and a chlorine atom exchange an electron?

Although not strictly speaking an "exchange", typically when theelectron interaction happens with a sodium and chlorine atom, itfollows the "ionic bond" model, the highly elec
