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?

  • A N
  • B S r
  • C G e
  • D B
  • E S

Q2:

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

  • A C l
  • B B
  • C M g
  • D P
  • E C o

Q3:

Which of the following is an accurate definition of electronegativity?

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

Q4:

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

  • A B
  • B L i
  • C O
  • D N
  • E C

Q5:

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

  • A A r
  • B C l
  • C S i
  • D A l
  • E N a
