Homework Help: chemistry

Why do you think that the ionization energy tends to decrease within a family of the periodic table?

Since ionization energy tends to increase within a period of the periodic table because they are in higher energy orbitals
so it'll take more energy to remove the electrons.
It decreases because it doesn't take as much energy to remove electrons?

thanks in advance
