Single Covalent Bond Bond between atoms formed by sharing a single pair of valence electrons.
Double Covalent Bond Bond formed when atoms share two pairs of valence electrons
Triple Covalent Bond Bond formed when atoms share three pairs of valence electrons
Electronegativity Atom's ability to attract and hold electrons.
Non-Polar Covalent Bond Covalent bond formed by an equal sharing of electrons between atoms.
Polar Covalent Bond Covalent bond formed by an unequal sharing of electrons between atoms.
Ion Charged atom or molecule.
Ionic Bond Bond formed by the electrostatic attraction after the complete transfer of an electron from a donor atom to an acceptor.
Element A substance that cannot be broken down into simpler substances by chemical reactions.
Atom Smallest possible unit of an element that retains the physical and chemical properties of its element.
Atomic Number Number of protons in an atom of a particular element.
Atomic Mass Number of protons and neutrons in an atom
Isotopes Atoms of an element that have the same atomic number but different mass number.
Electrons Light negatively charged particles that orbit around nucleus.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
