Problem 17Q

What is electronegativity?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 17Q

Here, we are going to explain electronegativity.

Step 1:

The ability of an atom in a chemical compound to attract the shared pair of electrons to itself is called electronegativity. It is not a measurable quantity.

Let us consider a molecule of HCl. Hydrogen and chlorine shares a pair of electron to form covalent bond.

                

Since chlorine is more electronegative, it will attract the shared pair of electron towards itself as shown below:

                                        

                

Step2:

The electronegativity of any given element is not constant. It varies depending on the element to which it is bound.
