Electronegativity: A measure of the tendency of an atom to attract a bonding pair of electrons. CHEMICAL BONDS H --------------- H H = H Equal electronegativity O --------------- H O > H Polar covalent bond Cl --------------- Na Cl >> Na Ionic bond δ- δ+ - + When electronegativities are unequal, there is a separation of charge within a molecule leading to bond polarity.
