About This Quiz & Worksheet

It takes energy to hold bonds together. Use this worksheet and quiz to test your understanding of the potential energy that does this and how energy can also be used to break chemical bonds.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

These assessments will test your knowledge about:

  • The energy that forms chemical bonds
  • How that energy can be released
  • Formation of strong and weak bonds
  • Chemical energy as potential energy

Skills Practiced

In addition to testing your knowledge also test your skills:

  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding chemical potential energy
  • Making connections - use your understanding of the concepts of potential energy and chemical energy
  • Distinguishing differences - compare and contrast topics from the lesson, such as weak and strong chemical bonds

Additional Learning

Get a better understanding of chemical potential energy by reviewing the lesson Chemical Potential Energy: Definition & Examples that accompanies these assessments. Use this lesson to learn how:

  • The energy that bonds molecules is potential energy
  • Adding more energy to bonds can break them
  • How new bonds can form between molecules from the energy released due to the separation of previous bonds
