Asked Oct 26, 2019
What is the relationship between the ionization energy of an anion with a -1 charge, such as F−, and the electron affinity of the neutral atom, F?
Express your answer in terms of EF, which represents the electron affinity of the neutral atom, F.

Expert Answer

Step 1

Electron affinity:

It is the energy released when an electron adds to the neutral gaseous atom (F-). 

Ionization energy:

Step 2

It is the energy required to remove an electron from the gaseous atom (F).
