Molecular bonding

Most molecular bonding problems do not involve any calculations, instead they ask you to use your knowledge of bonding to explain specific characteristics of a molecule. These characteristics usually include melting/boiling/freezing points, polarity, and/or solubility. Deep understanding of intermolecular forces and Lewis structures are necessary; many bonding problems require you to draw or examine a Lewis structure.

Bonding questions may also test the properties of individual elements, particularly comparing the ionization energy, electron affinity, atomic radii, et cetera between elements.
