Ionization in energy levels

Postby VahagnAldzhyan » Wed Oct 18, 2017 11:19 pm

What does it mean when a question asks "How much energy is required to ionize an electron?"

Ionization energy is the energy to remove an electron, so I'm pretty sure that the energy to ionize an electron would be the energy that would remove it.

The energy required to ionize an electron is the same as the energy required to remove an electron.

ionization energy is another name for the work function in the photoelectric effect
