What is an atomic radius and how do we calculate it?

The atomic radius is half the distance between the centers of two neighboring atoms. We have not really needed to calculate atomic radius as of now, and I don't think we will need to know how to calculate it for this class.
Hope that helps!

atomic radius is the distance from the nucleus to the outmost shell. i don't think we need to calculate it; i would assume the atomic radius would be either given to us in a problem, or we can solve for it with basic math (correct me if i'm wrong though).
