What Role Do Valence Electrons Play in Covalent Bonding?

Answer

Valence electrons are electrons that can participate in a reaction to form a chemical bond. A covalent bond is a chemical bond that involves the sharing of the valence electrons between atoms. The role of the valence electrons is to balance the reaction hence making the bond stronger.
