Atomic Radius

Postby Samantha Burmester 3H » Thu Nov 01, 2018 5:18 pm

For F.1 in the homework (7th edition), it gives the answer in the solutions manual with a value in pm. Will we be required to find that value for the midterm? If so, how do we do that?

To convert from meters to picometers, you multiply the length value by 1e+12

I’m not asking how to change from pm to m. I’m asking how did they come up with that value for the atomic radius? Is there a formula or is there a way to figure it out from the periodic table?

I think they are using values the values shown in Figures 1F.4 and 1F.6 on pages 54-55. We would not need those values on a test. We are just required to know the basic trends of atomic radii.
