About This Quiz & Worksheet

Get a better understanding of what's involved when atoms bond to each other. The quiz and worksheet will ask you to identify what bonds would form between two atoms with different electronegativities.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

These materials will assess your ability to figure out:

  • Electronegativity of specific atoms
  • What a covalent bond is
  • The difference between polar and non-polar bonds
  • The relationship between electronegativity and type of bond formed

Skills Practiced

Practice the following skills:

  • Making connections - use understanding of the concept of polarity
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding covalent and ionic bonds and interpret it correctly
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding electronegativity
