electronegativity values

Postby 705379941 » Sun Nov 10, 2019 3:21 pm

would we be given the electronegativity of elements when deciding which elements are more ionic or more covalent?

we are not responsible for knowing exact electronegative numbers, as long as you know the general trend you will be fine!

While you can tell if two atoms are more likely to form an ionic or covalent bond based on other factors, I'm sure if we were being asked to determine based specifically on electronegativity, the values would be provided.

Most of the time on tests (if needed) they will either give us the electronegativity of the the atoms or will add it to the periodic table. That way, the electronegativity is easier to find and we don't need to memorize them.

Most of the times, the elements are chosen so that we can easily understand just from the periodic trends; however, if it is difficult to get the value, he will provide you with the numbers.

Make sure to know the trends.

You won't need to memorize these values, they will likely be given if needed but you should know the trend of electronegativity in general.
