See if you can answer these questions:
Which electrons usually determine the chemical properties of an atom?
Of the bonds and intermolecular interactions discussed, which is the strongest? Which is the weakest?
What’s happening at a molecular level when water boils?
What’s the difference between adhesion and cohesion?
Does a buffer work indefinitely? Does it work for any pH?
