Back And Forth

a: Electronegativity ~
b: a tug of war

What: "Electronegativity is like a tug of war game between two atoms. If you have one person on the side of the rope that is stronger than the other person, then that stronger person will tug harder pulling the other person in their direction. On the other hand, if you had two people of equal strength, then the rope would not shift in any one direction and stay in the in the same place. Like tug of war, if you have a stronger atom with a higher electronegativity, then it will be able to tug electrons in their direction."
