Is electropositivity just the opposite of electronegativity? Would it literally be the opposite periodic/group trend of electronegativity with it increasing down a group and right to left across a period? There was a problem in the chapter 3 homework about this and I just want to make sure I understand the concept correctly.
Yes, it is the complete opposite. Electropositivity is more for metals while electronegativity is more for non-metals. It increases in a group from top to bottom and decreases across a period from left to right.
