List the following in order of increasing force of attraction
1. an electron in the outer shell of carbon atom (in the ground state level) 1.1*10^(-10)m a part from nucleus.

2.an electron in the outer shell of oxegen atom (in the ground state level) 9.0*10^(-11)m a part from nucleus.

3.an electron in the outer shell of sulfur atom (in the ground state level) 1.5*10^(-10)m a part from nucleus

  • chemistry -

    I would look at the ionization potential for each of the elements. The largest ionization potential is the one with the greatest attraction.

  • chemistry -

    no thing given rather then this information and this is exam question how i can look for ionization energy?

  • chemistry -

    You can google "table ionization potentials".
