BIO1110.05 - Week 12 Notes Electronegativity: o The tendency of an element to attract and bind electrons. High electronegativity means electrons are bound very tightly and the element has a tendency to rip electrons off of other atoms/compounds o Electronegativity increases from left to right and from bottom to top on the periodic table. Gravity vs. Electronegativity: o Gravity off = high potential energy o Gravity on = low potential energy o Carbon = low electronegativity
