What is the definition of First Ionisation energy? The amount of energy required to remove one electron from each atom, in one mole of gaseous atoms, to form one mole of +1 ions.
What are the three factors affecting Ionisation energy? Nuclear charge, Electron shielding and Atomic Radius
How does Nuclear charge affect Ionisation Energy? As the proton number increases, the greater the nuclear charge, the greater the attraction
How does Electron Shielding affect Ionisation Energy? The more shells, the inner shells repel the outer shells, making it easier to remove electrons
How does Atomic Radius affect Ionisation energy? Further from the nucleus, means there is less attraction between the protons and electrons
Why do successive ionisation energies increase slightly? Because as electrons are removed from the atom, the atom get slightly smaller, because there is stronger attraction from the nucleus, and the electrons are pulled in?
