About Electron Affinity Calculator (Formula)
The Electron Affinity Calculator is a useful tool for calculating the electron affinity of an atom or molecule. Electron affinity represents the energy change that occurs when an atom or molecule gains an electron to form a negative ion (anion). The formula used to calculate electron affinity is:
Electron Affinity = Energy of the system with an electron – Energy of the anion
By inputting the respective energy values into the calculator, it performs the calculation and provides the resulting electron affinity. This tool is particularly valuable in understanding the reactivity and stability of atoms and molecules, as electron affinity plays a significant role in chemical bonding and reactions.
