decreases

94

as you go across a row on the periodic table, electronegativity __________

increases

New cards
95

the lower the element's ____, the greater its reactivity

ionization energy

New cards
96

why bigger atoms have lower ionization energy and high reactivity

The bigger an atom is, the farther its valence electrons are from the positively charged nucleus, so the weaker the force of attraction is between its valence electrons and the nucleus, so the easier it is to remove an electron from the atom. Therefore, the bigger a metal atom is, the lower its ionization energy is, and the higher its reactivity is.

New cards
97

for the metals, reactivity ____ as you go down a column of the periodic table

increases

New cards
98

the greater the element's ____, the greater its reactivity

electronegativity

New cards
99

why is the bigger a nonmetal atom is, the lower its electronegativity is, and the lower its reactivity is

the bigger an atom is, the farther its valence electrons are from the positively charged nucleus, so the weaker the force of attraction is between its valence electrons and the nucleus, so the weaker the atom pulls on an attracts other electrons

New cards
100

for the nonmetals, reactivity ____ as you go down a column of the periodic table

decreases
