What is the difference in the trends on the periodic table between electronegativity and electron affinity?

I found a couple of sources which could answer your question, check these links out!

https://socratic.org/questions/what-is- ... n-affinity


"1. Electronegativity is a numerical value associated with an atoms ability to form a covalent bond
2. Electron affinity is the amount of energy that is released when an electron attaches to the atom
3. Electron affinity is a fixed and measurable value
4. Electronegativity cannot be measured and needs to be computed from other atomic properties by a few differing equations depending on which scientist you adhere to
5. Electronegativity values vary with different chemical environments
6. Electron Affinity is a value associated with individual atoms while Electron Negativity is the derived value of a molecule"

The trends are the same - they both increase upward and to the right. Electronegativity is the ability for a bonded atom to attract bonding electrons to itself while electron affinity is a measurable value (the energy change when an atom gains an electron).

The trends are basically the same, and the trend increases as you go across a period and up a group. Electronegativity is how likely the atom will attract electrons, while electron affinity is the amount of energy released when an electron is added to the atom.

The trends of electronegativity and electron affinity are the same. They increase to the right and increase when going up the periodic table. Electronegativity measures how strongly an atom of an element attracts bonding electrons and electron affinity is the amount of energy released when an electron is added to an atom.
