The atomic radius is the distance between the atomic nucleus and the outermost stable electron of a neutral atom (which is found by measuring the distance between the nuclei of 2 atoms that are touching, and halving that distance.) The ionic radius of an element is its share of the distance between neighboring ions in an ionic solid. Cations are smaller than their parent atoms, and anions are larger.
