How does electronegativity affect a bond?

The greater the electronegativity difference between the elements, the stronger the bond and therefore the shorter the bond length.

The higher the electronegativity, the closer the bond gets to being an ionic bond. Ionic bonds are stronger than covalent bonds. Therefore, this tells us that the higher the electronegativity is, the more the atoms are attracted to each other. The higher the electronegativity, the stronger and shorter the bond.

The higher the electronegativity the stronger the bond. When the bond is stronger is shorter.

If a atom has a very high electronegativity, it will pull on the electrons more and therefore form a stronger bond.

A higher electronegativity difference indicates a stronger bond, which can be exemplified with hydrogen bonds when considering that hydrogen has a very small electronegativity.

The higher the electronegativity, the stronger the bond is and the shorter the bond length is. Since the electronegativity is higher, then the closer a bond becomes to being ionic rather than covalent.

Electronegativity is basically how much an atom attracts electrons. So if there is a high electronegativity difference, it means that there is a strong bond and that the bond length will be shorter.

Electronegativity is correlated with shorter bond lengths, which are also stronger bonds by virtue of their compactness

The higher the electronegativity, the shorter the bond, the harder it is to break the bond.

Does electronegativity play a role in the boiling point?

If the electronegativity is higher, the bond is stronger. It also means the bond is shorter.

When the difference of electronegativity between two atoms are larger, the bond becomes stronger, and therefore the bond length is shortened.

Also, when the difference in electronegativity between the two atoms is greater than 1.7, the atoms will form an ionic bond instead of a covalent bond, since the atom with the higher electronegativity will "steal" one or more electrons from the other atom.

An atom that has a higher electronegativity, it pulls more electrons more toward the atom and thus form stronger bond.

When the electronegativity is stronger, the bond length gets shorter.
