Hi guys! So I remember in class going over isoelectric atoms, but I don't really get why they are not the same size? If they have the same amount of electrons, doesn't that mean they should all be relativity the same size?
Even though isoelectronic "ions" have same number of electrons, the number of protons may differ for those ions/atoms. So the ones with more proton will "pull" on these electrons more, giving smaller radius.
