HW question 3.77

Postby Katarina Ho -1B » Mon May 28, 2018 11:48 pm

In part b why does CF4 have a higher electronegativity difference than CH4?

I think it has largely to do with the fact that your comparing electronegativities between H and F, and because F is the most electronegative element it should be the most electronegative. Also I checked the electronegativity chart because they are pretty close to one another and the difference is bigger between CF4 than CH4

Fluorine has the highest electronegativity.

The electronegativity difference between C and H is less than the difference between C and F. C and H have almost the same electronegativity.
