difference between ionisation enthalpy and electronegetivity

Asked by sonu_sr14 | 30th Aug, 2008, 05:59: AM

Expert Answer:

In thermodynamics and molecular chemistry, the enthalpy or heat content is a quotient or description of thermodynamic potential of a system, which can be used to calculate the "useful" work obtainable from a closed thermodynamic system under constant pressure and entropy.

Electronegativity,, is a chemical property that describes the ability of an atom (or, more rarely, a functional group) to attract electrons (or electron density) towards itself in a covalent bond.
