Defining electronegativity

Postby emaad_3H » Sun Nov 03, 2019 9:00 pm

Is electronegativity a measure of an element's desire for a new electron or how strongly it's holding onto the electrons it already has?

Electronegativity is a measure of how strongly atoms attract bonding electrons to themselves.

Electronegativity is the tendency of an atom to attract a bonding pair of electrons.

Electronegativity is how strongly an atom attracts electrons from other atoms.

Electronegativity is a measure of the attraction of an atom for bonding electrons in molecules compared to that of other atoms. Large electronegativity values represent a stronger attraction for electrons than small electronegativity values. Electronegativities increase from left to right across the periodic table.
