Electron Affinity Exceptions

Postby Eli Esagoff_1I » Wed May 09, 2018 12:02 am

Do we need to know the exceptions to the trend of electron affinity for the upcoming exam?

I was also wondering the same thing. Also, if we do need to know this, do we need to know which specific atoms have these exceptions or do we need to understand and be able to explain why there are specific electron affinity exceptions without having to know the specific ones?

The practice midterm has several questions about atomic radius and electron affinity so I would definitely review them!

Yes we do need to know the exceptions for the exam. I believe that we only need to know the exceptions in relation to the first three rows of the periodic table and not all of it.
