This image demonstrates variation in electronegativity over the periodic table. An arrow pointing upwards beside the table is labelled to indicate that as principal quantum number of outer electrons decreases, electronegativity tends to increase. Another arrow, pointing to the right along the top of the table, is labelled to explain that as atomic number increases, electronegativity tends to increase.
