ionic and covalent bonds

Postby Clarissa Nava 3H » Sat Dec 08, 2018 7:24 pm

do electronegativity and electron affinity have the same periodic trend because of the atomic radius?

Electronegativity and electron affinity are basically the same thing, so yes

Yup! Both highest at fluorine

How are electron affinity and electronegativity the same thing? I am having a hard time understanding how the energy gained from adding an electron is related to the tendency to attract electrons.

Yeah, they both do. Highest values are at Flourine.

Both electronegativity and electron affinity increase upward for the groups and from left to right across periods of a periodic table.
