Question for Exams

Postby Matthew D 3F » Wed May 23, 2018 10:57 am

Would we need to know exact electronegativity values, or just their general trends on the periodic table?

You do not need to know or try to memorize the exact electronegativity values you just have to know the general trend of the periodic table.

General trends, and fluorine has the highest electronegativity (which I have commented on several times in class).

So for electronegativity, we should be able to recall that it increases as you go across the periodic table and decreases as you go down the periodic table. The greater the difference in electronegativity, then greater ionic character the bond has.

A t.a told me to be mindful of the electronegativity but we don't have to memorize it.
