Electronegativity Values

Postby Samantha Burmester 3H » Sun Nov 25, 2018 11:40 pm

Is electronegativity measured experimentally or do we have to find it with a formula?

The electronegativity values will be given to us in a problem. Otherwise, just follow the electronegativity trend for the periodic table to gauge if the values are lesser or greater than a value given.

Yeah I think it was mentioned in lecture that we didn't have to memorize values of electronegativity (that would also be a lot!), but rather just know the general trend of it: it increases as you go from left to right of a period where F is the most electronegative and a has somewhat trend of decreasing as you go down a group

The values aren't given on the periodic table so knowing the trend would be helpful to use as an estimate of how electronegative a molecule is. Also keep in mind that fluorine is the most electronegative
