polarizing power and polarizability

Postby katherinemurk 2B » Sun Nov 18, 2018 9:58 pm

Is it safe to say that polarizing power is indirectly proportional to atomic radius and directly proportional to electronegativity? and is polarizability indirectly proportional to electronegativity and directly proportional to atomic radius??

yeah pretty much. down the group, polarizing power decreases. its the opposite for polarizability
