7.4 Ionization Energy

The size of an atom gives an indication of how far away an electron is from the nucleus. Ionization Energy is defined as the energy required to remove an electron from an atom, so having a solid foundation on the size of an atom, we can now investigate how much energy it will take to remove an electron from an atom.

    I don’t understand how to indicate which elements would have a smaller or larger first ionization energy. Could we go over this in class tomorrow? Thank you!
