About This Quiz

When we think about chemistry, we tend to think about the periodic table. Everyone knows helium, hydrogen, copper and gold. However, have you kept up with the newest elements? In 2016, nihonium, Moscovium, Tennessine, and oganession were officially named and added to the periodic table. Don't worry! We won't ask you to name all 118 known elements. Considering, some elements have had more than one name throughout history, that would be a hard feat for even the most acclaimed chemist to accomplish.

Besides, chemistry is so much more than naming elements and finding them on the periodic table. If anything, memorizing the periodic table is boring. The exciting part of chemistry is how those elements interact and seeing the chemical reactions. Explosions, solvents and the states of matter are what gets kids excited.

This quiz will test you on chemistry knowledge that you learned in school. Remember the various states of matter? How about the groups on the periodic table? Do you know the different types of bonds? Can you explain what the pH scale measures? What about the difference between an exothermic and an endothermic reaction? Find out how well you remember those chemistry lessons! We may ask about condensation, but we won't be condescending!
