Periodic Table

This is a short quiz about the periodic table!

Posted on
  1. 1. What kind of bond do two nonmetals form?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Covalent bond

    Correct! Two nonmetals bonded together form a covalent bond! Since neither atom is strong enough to attract electrons from the other, they share their electrons from their outermost molecular orbit for stabilization!

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Ionic Bond

    Wrong! Ionic bonds are formed between a metal and a nonmetal!

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Hydrogen bond

    Wrong! A hydrogen bond must include a hydrogen molecule that is bonded to either fluorine, oxygen, or nitrogen!

  2. 2. What kind of bond is formed between a metal and a nonmetal?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Covalent bond

    Wrong! A covalent bond is formed between two nonmetals!

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Ionic Bond

    Correct! Ionic bonds are formed between a metal and a nonmetal! Nonmetals are stronger than the metal and can take electrons very easily from the metal. The opposite ions (nonmetal- negative; metal-postive) attract each other!

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Hydrogen Bond

    Wrong! A hydrogen bond must include a hydrogen molecule that is bonded to either fluorine, oxygen, or nitrogen!

  3. 3. What are columns of the periodic table called?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Rows
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Periods

    Correct! Columns of the periodic table are referred to as periods!

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Groups

    Wrong- groups are the rows!

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Biocolumn
  4. 4. What are rows of the periodic table called?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Biorow
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Period
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Column
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Group

    Correct! Rows of the periodic table are referred to as groups!

  5. 5. What are groups 14-18?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Nonmetals/gasses
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Transition metals
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Alkali Earth Metals
  6. 6. What is group 1?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Alkali Metals
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Alkali Earth Metals
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Metalloids
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Gasses
  7. 7. What kind of bond is formed between NaCl?

    Sodium is in group 1 and chlorine is in group 17

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Covalent Bond

    Correct! NaCl is a compound of a metal and a nonmetal!

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Ionic

    Wrong! NaCl is a compound of a metal and a nonmetal!

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Hydrogen Bonding

    Wrong! The compound does not include hydrogen!

  8. 8. Electronegativity affects __________

    Correct
    Incorrect
    The weather
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Polarity

    Electronegativity affects polarity because the greater the electronegativity in an atom, the greater its ability to attract electrons, the greater is its ability to become more negatively charged. If the difference in electronegativity between two atoms is great, the electrons will attract to the electronegative atom and will move away from the other. This difference in electron distribution creates negative and positive poles.

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Hydrogen Bonding
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Ionic Bonding
  9. 9. As you move across a group, electronegativity ______

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Decreases
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Remains Constant
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Increases, then decreases
  10. 10. As you move down a period, electronegativity ________

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Remains Constant
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Decreases
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Increases
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Decreases, then increases
