Chemical Bond Quizzes & Trivia

A chemical bond is a lasting attraction between atoms, ions or molecules that enables the formation of chemical compounds. Some bonds are weaker, and some are stronger. Two of the strongest forms of chemical bond are the ionic and the covalent bonds. Test your knowledge of chemical bonding by taking the pre test below.
