Problem 6 : Explain the concept of electronegativity and how it influences the type of chemical bonding in compounds.
Solution :

Electronegativity is the tendency of an atom to attract electrons in a chemical bond. When the electronegativity difference between two atoms is large, an ionic bond forms, where one atom loses electrons (cation) and the other gains electrons (anion). When the electronegativity difference is small, a covalent bond forms, where electrons are shared between atoms.
