Electronegativity vs. Polarity

Published:

Electronegativitynoun

the tendency, or a measure of the ability, of an atom or molecule to attract electrons and thus form bonds

Polaritynoun

The separation, alignment or orientation of something into two opposed poles.

Electronegativitynoun

(chemistry) the tendency of an atom or radical to attract electrons in the formation of an ionic bond

Polaritynoun

Either of the two extremes of such attributes.

Electronegativity

Electronegativity, symbolized as χ, is the tendency for an atom of a given chemical element to attract shared electrons (or electron density) when forming a chemical bond. An atom's electronegativity is affected by both its atomic number and the distance at which its valence electrons reside from the charged nucleus.

Polaritynoun

(chemistry) The dipole-dipole intermolecular forces between the slightly positively-charged end of one molecule to the negative end of another or the same molecule. Wp

Polaritynoun

(embryology) The division of an embryo into an animal pole and a vegetal pole within a blastula. Wp

Polaritynoun

(microbiology) Spatial differences in shape, structure, and function within a cell. Wp

Polaritynoun

(electricity) A measure of the electrical potential at the ends of a circuit. Wp

Polaritynoun

(physics) The direction of a wave's amplitude or its being in phase or antiphase.

Polaritynoun

(grammar) The grammatical category of the affirmative and the negative. Wp

Polaritynoun

Polaritynoun

Polaritynoun

(politics) Any of the various ways in which power is distributed within the international system. Wp

Polaritynoun

Polaritynoun

(physics) magnetic polarity

Polaritynoun

(geometry) trilinear polarity

Polaritynoun

That quality or condition of a body in virtue of which it exhibits opposite, or contrasted, properties or powers, in opposite, or contrasted, parts or directions; or a condition giving rise to a contrast of properties corresponding to a contrast of positions, as, for example, attraction and repulsion in the opposite parts of a magnet, the dissimilar phenomena corresponding to the different sides of a polarized ray of light, etc.

Polaritynoun

A property of the conic sections by virtue of which a given point determines a corresponding right line and a given right line determines a corresponding point. See Polar, n.

Polaritynoun

a relation between two opposite attributes or tendencies;

‘he viewed it as a balanced polarity between good and evil’;

Polaritynoun

having an indicated pole (as the distinction between positive and negative electric charges);

‘he got the polarity of the battery reversed’; ‘charges of opposite sign’;
