(a) What is meant by the term electronegativity? (b) On the Pauling scale what is the range of electronegativity values for the elements? (c)Which element has the greatest electronegativity? (d) Which element has the smallest electronegativity?
Step 1 of 3
Periodic Properties of the Elements Effective Nuclear Charge, Z* = number of protons in the nucleas- the shielding constant o A measure of the positive nuclear charge felt by an electron in the presence of other electrons o Z is the # of protons in the nucleus o Sigma is the shielding or screening constant, a measure of how much the electrons in the same or lower shells "protect" the electron from the nuclear charge o No screening by N+1 and higher level electrons o Screening by n level electrons < n-1 level electrons o Greatest screening by n-2 and lower level electrons o In front shield, in back don't shield at all o Within a family(vertical column) on the
