Electronegativity

It is the tendency of a bonded atom to bring in other electrons

The ability of an atom to bring in other electrons and elements is how it is related to chemical bonds

As we go to the right and up on the periodic table, we get to see that the elements get increasing electronegativity

Ionizing Energy

It is the energy that is use to remove the electrons that are in the elements that are gasses.

How is this related to the charge of an ion?

Because it is related to the valence electrons in the ions, we are able to use that to find out how many electrons there are in the outer ring.

Periodic Trends

As you go to the right and up on the periodic table, you see that the energy is increasing.
