7.5 Electron Affinity

We saw with ionization energy that we can measure how much energy is required to remove an electron. We can also look into what will happen when an electron is added to an atom. Will adding an electron make the atom more or less stable? The amount of energy associated with the gain of an electron by a gaseous atom is its Electron Affinity.
