Nonmetals?

Postby Sana_Mian_3G » Fri Nov 23, 2018 10:41 pm

Are nonmetals more electronegative than metals? Does this have to do with their placement on the periodic table?

Yes, generally non-metals tend to be more electronegative than metals, as the non-metals are located on the right side of the periodic table (and from the periodic trends, we know that from left to right electronegativity increases.)

Nonmetals are usually more electronegative than metals because these specific elements are closer to a full outer shell. Additionally, those who have a higher amount of valence electrons (which is determined through their position in the periodic table) are more electronegative.
