Place the following ions in order of increasing ionic radius: S22, Cl2, P32.

All of these ions have a full shell, so its only a matter of how much greater the charge of the nucleus is compared to the amount of electrons. P3- has the largest atomic radius because there is not as much of a difference in charge to hold the same number of electrons, S2- has the second largest and Cl- has the lowest atomic radius due to its higher number of protons pulling in the shell tighter. In general, for periodic trends, the atomic radius of an atom decreases as you move right across a row or up a column.
