what is Electronegativity ? Electronegativity is defined as the ability of an atom in a particular molecule to attract electrons to itself
what happens to electronegativity as you move across the period? As you go across a period the electronegativity increases.
what happens to electronegativity as you move down the group? As you go down a group, electronegativity decreases
what is the most electronegative element? The most electronegative element is fluorine
The higher the electronegativity? the more the atom attracts and holds on to electrons.
The weaker the electronegativity? the less the attraction to the valence electrons
what happens to the strength of valence electrons if an element has low electronegativity? and therefore has a weak hold on it's valence electrons.
A small electronegativity difference leads to? a polar covalent bond.
A large electronegativity difference leads to? an ionic bond.
If there is no electronegativity difference between two atoms leads to? a pure non-polar covalent bond
When two atoms are equally electronegative, they will interact to form nonpolar covalent bonds.
