The overlap of atomic orbitals produces an increase in electron charge density between the atomic nuclei. The increased negative charge density holds the positively charged atomic nuclei together, and constituents the covalent bond. A covalent bond is a region of high electron charge density produced by the overlap of the atomic orbitals of two atoms. The greater is the extent of overlap of orbitals, greater is the strength of the resulting bond. The shape of the molecule is determined by the direction in which the overlapping orbitals point. The overlapping orbitals resulting in covalent bonds may be pure or hybrid. A hybrid orbitals is one of a set of identical orbitals produced by the combination of different types of atomic orbitals.
