Trend of Electronegativity

Postby chrisavalos-2L » Sat Dec 01, 2018 8:29 pm

I was wondering what the trend for electronegativity was, is it the same as ionization energy?

Yes they have similar trends. Both increase as you move right across a period and up a group/family.

Yes. The electronegativity trend is that it increases as it goes up and to the right on a periodic table.

The trends are the same. They increase up a group and across a period. It usually helps me to draw a diagonal line up and across the periodic table to remind myself of this trend during tests!

Electronegativity increases across a period and up a group, so it is the same trend as ionization energy.

Yes, the trend for electronegativity is the same as the trend for ionization energy.

Electronegativity increases as you go up the periodic table and as you go across the periodic table. Same goes for ionization energy.

Electronegativity increases as you go up the periodic table as the energy level is lower so electrons are held closer to the nucleus with lower atomic radii and an increased effective nuclear charge. As you go across the periodic table electronegativity also increases as the energy level remains the same but atoms increase in atomic number and the increased number of protons also increases effective nuclear charge pulling electrons tighter increasing electronegativity. As effective nuclear charge increases so does electronegativity.

Electronegativity increases across a period and decreases down a group.
