    hi, could anyone kind enough to tell me what are directional bonding and non-directional bonding? what are the difference between them?

    Bonding between K and Cl is not directional, while bondings between
    two atoms of sulphur or two molecules of water are directional, i.e. they
    depend on the atom (molecule) orientation...
