1 Periodic Trends Mrs. Coyle Chemistry

2 Part I – Atomic Size

3 Atomic Radius Measures as distance from nucleus to nucleus and divided by 2. Unit commonly used is pm picometer= 10-12m Example: iodine atomic radius 140pm

4 How does atomic radius change across a period?
It is smaller to the right. Why? More protons in the nucleus higher electrical force pulls electrons closer to nucleus.

5 How does atomic radius change down a group?
It is larger down the group. Why? Valence electrons are at higher energy levels and are not bound as tightly to the nucleus because they are screened or shielded ( pushed away) by other electrons in inner levels.

6 Note There are some exceptions. Example column 13.

7 The Periodic Table and Atomic Radius

8 Example: Which is larger: a lithium atom or a fluorine atom?

9 Example: Which is larger: an arsenic atom or a sulfur atom?

10 Part II – Ionization Energy

11 Ionization energy Ionization energy is the amount of energy needed to remove an electron from a gaseous atom. First ionization energy – Second ionization energy –

12 Ion Positive ion ---removal of electron
Negative ion--- addition of electron

13 How does ionization energy change down a group?
The first ionization energy decreases as you move down a group. Why? The size of the atom increases. Electron is further from the nucleus.

14 How does ionization energy change across a period?
The first ionization energy increases as you move from left to right across a period. Why? Nuclear charge increases while shielding is constant. Attraction of the electron to the nucleus increases.


16 Ionic size Metallic elements easily lose electrons.
Non-metals more readily gain electrons. How does losing or gaining an electron effect the size of the atom (ion) ?

17 Positive ions Positive ions are always smaller that the neutral atom. Loss of outer shell electrons.

18 Negative Ions Negative ions are always larger than the neutral atom. Gaining electrons.

19 Ion size trends in periods.
Going from left to right there is a decrease in size of positive ions. Starting with group 5, there is sharp increase followed by a decrease in the size of the anion as you move from left to right.

20 Ion size trends in columns.
Ion size increases as you move down a column for both positive and negative ions

21 Electronegativity: the ability of an atom in a bond to pull on the electron. (Linus Pauling)

22 Electronegativity When electrons are shared by two atoms a covalent bond is formed. When the atoms are the same they pull on the electrons equally. Example, H-H. When the atoms are different, the atoms pull on the electrons unevenly. Example, HCl

23 Trends in Electronegativity
Electronegativity generally decreases as you move down a group. Electronegativity of the representative elements (Group A elements) increases as you move across a period.

24 Electronegativities of Some Elements
Element Pauling scale F Cl O N S C H Na Cs 0.7

25 Note Most electronegative element is F (EN 4.0)
Least electronegative stable element is Cs (EN 0.7)

26 Summary Ionization energy decreases Electronegativity decreases
Nuclear charge increases Atomic radius increases Shielding increases Ionic size increases Shielding is constant Atomic Radius decreases Ionization energy increases Electronegativity increases Nuclear charge increases
