1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I was studying about electronegativity from a book.
Its written that as polarizing power increases, electronegativity increases.
Also, the electronegativity increases as the s-character in the hybrid orbitals increases.
I don't understand these two statements.
I don't understand how electronegativity is related to polarising power and s-character?

2. Relevant equations
$\phi$=(Charge on cation)/(Radius of cation)2

3. The attempt at a solution
