Title: electronegativity
Post by: carlepy on May 20, 2021, 12:24:16 AM
hi chems

I have a question. I am trying to correlate reactivity with electronegativity.
For example:

I have Ag+ (solid silver piece) in a solution containing Cl- and I-. Accordingly with the reactivity series, Cl is more reactive than I. And Cl is more electronegative than I. Is it possible to say that Cl- will be more attracted to Ag+?

ps: imagine ideal quantities

Thank you

"Solid silver piece" - what is that? Is it a soluble silver salt like AgNO3, or piece of solid silver (Ag) ???

Rather I- will be more attracted, as - when adding Ag+ dropwise to solution of Cl- and I- - AgI will be formed in first case.

is a solid silver piece that have Ag+ on the surface. I- and Cl- are in solution, thank you so much.

Why are you trying to correlate reactivity with electronegativity?
