Bonding and Structure
a) Electronegativity - A measure of the tendency of an atom to attract a bonding pair of electrons.
The greater the electronegativity of an atom, the more it attracts electrons to itself.
- As you go across a period the electronegativity increases. Argon is not shown as it does not make bonds.
As you go down a group the electronegativity decreases.
