Atoms with an unmatched electron in their s orbital are very active. The best way to calm them down is to match them up.

This course looks at hydrogen atoms when they join to form H2, or hydrogen gas. The goal is to visualize how the two electrons of two hydrogen atoms come together to form a “solid” bond.
But first, let’s discuss very fast creatures.
