1
Q

What is the trend in boiling points for group 7

A

The boiling points increase as you go down the group as each atom gains an extra outer shell of electrons so it will for more van der walls forces between molecules, so requires more energy to break bonds.

2
Q

What is the trend in electro-negativity for group 7

A

The electro-negativity decreases down group 7, this is because the outer electrons are further away from the nucleus due to increased shielding so they have a weaker attraction to the nucleus
