23. When an electron is added to a neutral gaseous atom to convert it into a negative ion, the enthalpy change accompanying the process is defined electron gain enthalpy. Electron gain enthalpy provides a measure of the ease with which an atom adds an electron to form anion. Depending on the element, the process of adding an electron to the atom can be either endothermic or exothermic. For many elements energy is released when an electron is added to the atom and the electron gain enthalpy is negative.

Now answer the following questions :

(i) Which of the following pairs of elements would you have a more negative electron gain enthalpy. (i) 0 or F F or Cl. [Value Based Question] [2]

(ii) Would you expect the second electron gain enthalpy of 0 as positive, more negative or less negative than the first ? Justify your answer. [Value Based Question] [2]
