i have no idea how ionization works, yet i have to do a worksheet on it! help!
how does ionization, and how do you tell which element has a higher ionization energy in relation to another? PLZ ANSWER SOON! I NEED HELP!

  • chemistry -

    Ionization is the removal of an electron from an atom. Nonmetals have higher ionization energies than metals since it is harder to remove an electron from a nonmetallic atom.
    When you compare elements on the same row (period) of the periodic table, the one farther to the right has the higher ionization energy.
    When you compare elements on the same group (column), the element located higher has the larger ionization energy.
