What type of bond is CH4?

Asked by Thiago Price

Methane, CH4, is a covalent compound with exactly 5 atoms that are linked by covalent bonds. We draw this covalent bonding as a Lewis structure (see diagram). The lines, or sticks, as we say, represent the covalent bonds. There are four bonds from a central carbon (C) linking or bonding it to four hydrogen atoms (H).
