Chapter 3, Question 73

Postby Alma Cruz 1A » Sat Jul 22, 2017 8:10 pm

I was looking at the solutions manual for question 73 in chapter 3 and noticed that there are numbers next to the element listed when asked to order them in increasing electronegativity:
In(1.78)<Sn(1.96)<Sb(2.05)<Se(2.55)

Can someone please explain where the numbers come from?

Thanks in advance!

Those are the electronegativity numbers for the elements, you can a find a periodic table with that information on page 87 of the course reader or page 92 in the textbook.
