Question

Which is the correct order of electronegativity?

Solution

Correct option is

F > N < O > C

 

Element                              F      O      N      C

Electronegativity (eV)      4.0    3.5    3.1    2.5  

Hence, correct order is F > O > N > C  

or                     F > N < O > C.
