question confused

Postby Mohamad Farhat 1L » Tue May 08, 2018 11:22 am

how can we determine 1st round of ionization compared to 2nd round of ionization energy?

The "rule" is that 2nd round ionization energy always requires more energy than 1st round. This is because it requires energy to remove the first electron (which makes the element a positive ion). It takes even more energy to remove an electron from the now positive ion than it would have been to just remove the electron from a neutral atom. We won't have to actually calculate how much energy is required though.

Hope this made sense!
