Covalent bonds are directional in nature. Explain.

Ionic bond are non-directional because it is the electrostatic force between two opposite charges, Hence bonding direction does not matter whereas covalent is directional as attraction is in a specific direction and at an angle relative to the bonding atoms. As a result, molecules in which atoms are bonded covalently have definite shapes.
