Periodic Table

This is a short quiz about the periodic table!

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

    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!

    Ionic Bond

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

    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?

    Covalent bond

    Wrong! A covalent bond is formed between two nonmetals!

    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!

    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?

    Rows
    Periods

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

    Groups

    Wrong- groups are the rows!

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

    Biorow
    Period
    Column
    Group

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

  5. 5. What are groups 14-18?

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

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

    Sodium is in group 1 and chlorine is in group 17

    Covalent Bond

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

    Ionic

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

    Hydrogen Bonding

    Wrong! The compound does not include hydrogen!

  8. 8. Electronegativity affects __________

    The weather
    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.

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

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

    Remains Constant
    Decreases
    Increases
    Decreases, then increases
