• define electronegativity and state how electronegativity varies with position in the periodic table.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Explain electronegativity and state how electronegativity varies with position in the periodic table.

Concept introduction:

Electronegativity:

Electronegativity is a measure of an atom or an element to attract a pair of electrons towards itself.

Electronegativity increases across the period. It decreases while down the group.

Explanation of Solution

Electronegativity is the tendency of the atom of an element to attract the shared electron pair towards its nucleus.

Pauling’s scale of electronegativities is based onenergies. Bond energy of AB molecule is taken as the average of bond energies of A2 and B2 molecules.Experimental bond energy of AB is more than the calculated value.

Δ = EAB12(EAA+EBB)Δ is the difference in the bond energiesXA-XB= 0.208Δ ; where Δ is in Kcal mol-1XA-XB= 0
