Covalent Bond Test! Trivia Quiz

Covalent bonds are the chemical bonds that enable atoms to share electrons. There are different types of covalent bonds, depending on the number of electrons being shared. An example of a covalent body is the one where hydrogen and oxygen atoms bond. Do you know how to describe covalent bonds correctly? This quiz will help you refresh your memory on these types of bonds.
