what type of bond forms between 2 fluorine atoms
September 17, 2014

 When you draw an electron dot diagram for chlorine you will see that there are 7 valence electrons (3pairs and 1lone). The electronegativity difference is zero. Therefore the F atoms will share their lone electron to form a covalent bond which is nonpolar (equal sharing).
