Does the chlorine atoms in hydrogen chloride have a stronger attraction for the electrons than the hydrogen atoms do?

Yes. The electronegativity of chlorine is more than that of hydrogen. As such, the electrons are closer towards chlorine than hydrogen in HCl.

How many atoms of each element are present in molecules of HCl?

HCl is an acidic compound. It is formed of hydrogen ions and chloride ions. It has one Hydrogen atom and one Chlorine atom.HCl is a polar covalent compound. It has hydrogen and chlorine atoms. The latter being more electronegative, the compound partially decomposes into ions in aqueous medium.

How many atoms are there in HCl?

There are two atoms in one molecule of hydrochloric acid. It contains hydrogen and chlorine. H is hydrogen and Cl is chlorine.

Is a covalent bond formed between hydrogen and oxygen atoms?

Yes, hydrogen and oxygen atoms form covalent bonds when they chemically combine.

The type of weak bond formed from the attraction of opposite charges between hydrogen and other atoms?

The type of weak bond formed from the attraction of opposite charges between hydrogen and other atoms is called a hydrogen bond. It is a result of electrostatic attraction.

What happens when two chlorine atoms join to form chlorine gas Cl2?

When two chlorine atoms combine, the chlorine molecule is formed.

What type of bond is formed between H and Cl when they form hydrogen chloride?

If Hydrogen gas is chemically combined with Chlorine gas, Hydrogen chloride is formed: H2 (g) + Cl2 (g) ---> 2 HCl (g) The bond is covalent (the atoms share electrons) and polar (Chlorine is more electronegative). Hydrogen chloride gas will dissolve in water and disassociate into ions: HCl ---> H+ (aq) + Cl- (aq)

What type of bond is formed between atoms of a molecule of the product of this reaction?
