Ionic Bond Quizzes & Trivia

A chemical bond is formed between two ions with opposite charges when one atom gives up one or more electrons to another atom. It is the complete transfer of valence electrons between atoms. This quiz has been designed for middle school students who have completed a study of ionic chemical bonding. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!
