Consider this set of successive ionization energies:
IE1 = 578 kJ/mol
IE2 = 1820 kJ/mol
IE3 = 2750 kJ/mol
IE4 = 11,600 kJ/mol
To which third-period element do these ionization values belong?
Problem 78EConsider this set of successive ionization energies:To which third-period element do these ionization values belong Step by step solutionStep 1 of 2Ionization energy: This is the amount of energy required to remove an electron present in thevalance shell of a gaseous state atom present in the ground state.In a group of the periodic table, ionization energy will be decreased from top to bottomConsider the ionization energy belonging to the third period element as follows:Find the difference between successive ionization energies as follows:
