What are the different types of bonds and what distinguishes them?

Hydrogen bonds
Polar covalent bonds
Non polar covalent bonds
Ionic bonds

Hydrogen: it’s when an oxygen, nitrogen, or fluorine atom with a lone pair interacts with the hydrogen bonded to another nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine atom.

Polar covalent: a covalent bond where a pair of electrons are not equally shared between atoms. This is due to one atom having higher electronegativity than the other. For example H sharing with Cl

Non polar covalent: equal sharing of electrons. For example C sharing with C

Ionic bonds: When oppositely charged ions closely associate, usually in a crystal lattice

Hope this helped!

do we need to know this for the Final? Like what possible questions could be asked?

My guess is yes, and it is usually helpful to know what force is being used when completing a problem. :)

Hydrogen bonds occur when an O,N or F atom that has a lone pair interacts with the H that is bonded to another N,O or F atom.

Polar covalent bonds occur when a pair of electrons aren't equally shared between atoms and it's from one atom having a higher electronegativity than the other

Non polar covalent bonds occur with equal sharing of electrons

Ionic bonds occur when oppositely charged ions associate with each other
