REFLECT AND APPLY Contemplate biochemistry if atoms did not differ in electronegativity.

Interpretation Introduction

**Interpretation:**

The contemplation of biochemistry, if the atoms did not differ in electronegativity, is to be explained.

**Concept introduction:**

Electronegativity can be defined as the tendency of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons toward itself in a chemical bond.

Atoms of the same elements have similar electronegativities. Atoms of different elements have different electronegativities. Elements with a high electronegativity are fluorine, nitrogen, and oxygen.

Electrons are shared equally between atoms of the same element. Atoms of different elements have different electronegativities, which allows unequal sharing of electrons. This unequal sharing of electrons gives rise to the polarity of bonds as the shared pair of electrons are attracted more toward the atom with a high electronegativity...
