Polarizing Power

Postby Anika Chakrabarti 1A » Sat Nov 02, 2019 1:58 pm

Does polarizing power follow any trends on the periodic table?

Polarizing power increases from left to right, from bottom to top on a periodic table.

The polarizing power follows the same trends as electronegativity, because electronegativity is a measure of how much an electron is attracted to an atom. It follows that an atom that attracts electrons will be effective at polarizing them.

Does polarization power only apply to ionic bonds?
