Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by sarah on Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 2:38am.

im learning the general concepts of how atoms react etc... and i was struggling on the concept of diatomic molecules and how they work.

For example, i understand how halogens would be diatomic, (through reacting with the other atom by sharing one electron...)
but, for example, how is nitrogen diatomic?

doesnt it need to share with another 3 atoms or so, in order to obtain a full valence shell ? how is that diatomic?
