Electronegativity By Megan Blass, Devon Templeman, Kiel Larkin, Ariz Magaña
What is Electronegativy? The ability of an atom to attract electrons with the purpose of forming chemical bonds. Determines the type of bond formed. Covalent, polar, or ionic bonds are formed based on which atom is more electronegative. If one atom is more electronegative than the other the electron in the bond will belong more to one atom than the other. This can alter the charge slightly.
Electronegativity and Effective Nuclear Charge The effective nuclear charge an atom has is directly related to electronegativity. If inner electrons are shielding the pull of the nucleus, an atom wont keep its outer electrons, and will have a weaker pull on another atoms electrons.
Electronegativity in the Periodic Table Electronegativity increases as you move up and to the right. Flourine is the most electronegative element and it is located in the top right corner of the periodic table.
