Atomic Radii

What is the Distance Between Atoms from the Same Element?

This post will introduce the concept of atomic radii and its trends across the periodic table for periodicity in Prelim Chemistry.

Topic: Periodicity

  • Demonstrate, explain and predict the relationships in the observable trends in the physical and chemical properties of elements in periods and groups in the periodic table, including but not limited to:
    • Electronic configurations and atomic radii

 

The Atomic Radius

The atomic radius is half the distance between the nuclei of two adjacent atoms from the same element. This video will explain a little more about atomic radii and its trends across the periodic table.
