Im pretty sure it is the power of an atom to attract electron density from another atom/molecule, atleast I think so based on what I have been taught in A-Level

I think it's the ability of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons in a covalent bond.

electronegativity??:mad::confused:
What is your question? the electronegativity is used by an atom in a chemical reaction to attract the electrons of an another atom. Thus a chemical bond between atoms come into being. The attraction depends on the difference between the electronegativities of the atoms in a chemical reaction. The greater the difference the greater the mutual attraction of the atoms.

The atom which has the greatest electronegativity in a chemical reaction attracts the electrons of an atom most of all.
