A question about the bonding of carbon in the diamond.
Carbon is a group four element that it need to gain four electrons to maintain a stable condition, right? In diamond, the carbon in the diamond will form this bond with another carbon to form a giant covalent structure, right?
Then here comes the question: there will always be the tips (carbon that need to gain more electrons to be stable)that need to be form bonding with the other carbon, right? So how will the 'tips' be maintain a stable condition?
