Covalent Bond Quizzes, Questions & Answers

When two atoms join together in a covalent bond, they form a molecule that shares electrons. Unlike in the ionic bond, neither of the atoms in a covalent bond loses or gains an electron; instead, both atoms use a pair of shared electrons.

The simplest covalent bonds form between atoms of the same element. To help predict which atoms are likely to form covalent bonds, scientists use the octet rule. This rule states that atoms are most stable (and, thus, nonreactive) when their first electron shell has two electrons and any outer shells have eight electrons.

If you want to know the answer to the questions “What does a covalent bond involve?”, “Where do the electrons in a covalent bond come from?”, and “What sort of elements form a covalent bond?”, then take these quizzes to understand the chemistry of the covalent bond!
