electronegativity

Postby Clarissa Nava 3H » Sat Dec 08, 2018 7:18 pm

does this have to doe with electron charges or the energy release when an electron is added to an atom?

Electronegativity is the tendency of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons towards itself. It increases across and decreases down the periodic table.

Electronegativity is related to the electron-pulling ability of an atom. Elements at the top right corner of the periodic table have the highest electronegativity, meaning that electronegativity increases as you move right across the table and decreases as you move down.
