One scale for electronegativity is based on the concept that
the electronegativity of any atom is proportional to the
ionization energy of the atom minus its electron affinity:
electronegativity = k1I - EA2, where k is a proportionality
constant. (b) Why are both ionization
energy and electron affinity relevant to the notion of
