Electronegativity - ability of an atom to attract electrons to itself in a chemical bond
Hydrogen bonding – occurs in compounds where hydrogen is directly connected to an electronegative element such as N, O, or F
Polarizability - ability of an atom’s or a molecule’s outer electron cloud to be distorted from its normal shape by an electric field
Volatility - ability to evaporate easily
Viscosity - the resistance of a liquid to flow
The ease with which the charge distribution in a molecule can be distorted by an external electrical field is called the _____.
