Worksheet: Types of Bonding

In this worksheet, we will practice describing the origin and properties of covalent, polar covalent, ionic, and metallic bonding.

Q1:

Which of the following is the least useful piece of information for predicting the type of bonding likely to occur between two elements?

  • ATheir electronegativities
  • BTheir boiling points
  • CTheir melting points
  • DTheir position in the periodic table
  • ETheir electron arrangements

Q2:

In which type of chemical bond are electrons transferred from one atom to another?

  • AIonic bond
  • BHydrogen bond
  • CCovalent bond
  • DMetallic bond
  • EDative bond

Q3:

Which of the following is an accurate definition of a dative covalent bond?

  • AA bond in which two bonding electrons are shared between more than two atoms
  • BA bond comprising more than two shared bonding electrons
  • CA bond comprising two shared bonding electrons that originate from the same atom
  • DA bond in which two bonding electrons are shared unevenly between a pair of bonded atoms
  • EA bond comprising only one shared bonding electron

Q4:

Which of the following molecules and ions does not contain a dative covalent bond?

  • A C S 2
  • B C O
  • C H N O 3
  • D N H 4 +
  • E B F 4

  • BGravitational force
  • CElectrostatic force
  • DCovalent force
  • EMetallic force
