# What kind of bond is formed between hydrogen and chlorine atoms?

THe $H C l$ molecule could be represented as ${H}^{\delta +} - C {l}^{\delta -}$. It is an actual molecule with a boiling point of $- 85$ ""^@C; i.e. it is a room temperature gas. When dissolved in water it forms stoichiometric ${H}_{3} {O}^{+}$, and $C {l}^{-} \left(a q\right)$ ions.
