Worksheet: Electronegativity

In this worksheet, we will practice defining electronegativity and rank the electronegativities of elements based on their positions in the periodic table.

Q1:

From their positions in the periodic table, which of the following has the lowest electronegativity?

  • AS
  • BB
  • CN
  • DSr
  • EGe

Q2:

From their positions in the periodic table, which of the following has the highest electronegativity?

  • ACl
  • BCo
  • CB
  • DP
  • EMg

Q3:

Which of the following is an accurate definition of electronegativity?

  • AThe number of valence electrons that an atom can provide for chemical bonding
  • BThe energy released when electrons are added to a neutral atom
  • CThe energy needed to remove electrons from a neutral atom
  • DThe ability of an atom in a chemical bond to attract electrons toward itself
  • EThe charge of an atom resulting from the uneven distribution of electrons in a chemical bond

Q4:

Which of the following period 2 elements has the highest electronegativity?

  • AB
  • BN
  • CC
  • DLi
  • EO

Q5:

Which of the following period 3 elements has the highest electronegativity?

  • AAr
  • BAl
  • CCl
  • DNa
  • ESi

Q6:

Which of the following compounds is the most covalent?

  • ARbCl
