The factor that affects how easily an electron can be removed from an atom is the

  • physical science -

    ionization potential.

  • physical science -

    I may have misinterpreted the question. The "factors" are how much positive charge is on the nucleus AND how far the electron is away from the nucleus. The ionization potential reflects how easily an electron is removed.
