There are two types of chemical bonds, covalent and ionic. Ionic bonds involve the complete transfer of electrons and covalent bonds share electrons. In quartz, or SiO2, the electrons are shared, so it is a covalent bond.

Carbon is versatile because it can form single, double, and triple bonds. It can also form chains, branched chains, and rings. Also, carbon atoms bond fairly readily with other carbon atoms. It's much more energetically favorable for, say, a silicon atom to bond with an oxygen atom than another silicon atom; with carbon, the difference is less, so carbon-carbon bonds are more stable in the presense of oxygen than silicon-silicon bonds are... this is important, given that oxygen is the third most common element in the universe.

A polar covalent bond. Carbon and oxygen are both nonmetals. Nonmetals bond together with covalent bonds.


Silicon dioxide is not like carbon dioxide ( forms double bond with oxygen); this is expalined because it's energetically unfavourable for silicon dioxide to form double bond. 2p and 3p overlap b/w silicon and oxygen is not energetically favorable, so instead silicon binds covalent with 4 oxygen atoms( single bond) and forming a crystalline solid shape.


Oxygen and Hydrogen are held together by a covalent bond. This is because the Oxygen atom shares one of its' electrons with the Hydrogen atom.


The covalent bond between a hydrogen atom and and an oxygen atom when the two atoms share electrons. They form a water molecule when there are two hydrogen atoms sharing electrons with one oxygen atom.


A hydrogen bond is a type of chemical bond. A hydrogen atom bonds with either a nitrogen, fluorine, or oxygen atom to make a weak bond.
