Period Trends

Postby Jessica Luong 3K » Sat Nov 02, 2019 5:30 pm

Are there any other trends besides electron affinity, ionization, and electronegativity?

There is also a trend for atomic radius. The trend for this is that the radius tends to decrease across and period and increase down a group.

There's also ionic radius, which increases down a group and decreases across period.

The atomic radius trend is also important, where it increases down a group and decreases across a period.

Atomic radius trend. It increases down the row and decreases across the row from left to right.

Besides the trends stated, there is also a melting point trend. Generally stating, metals possess a higher melting point in comparison to non-metals. There is not a distinguishable trend on the periodic table to visualize that statement, but it is helpful knowing the properties of metals versus non-metals.

There is also a trend with the atomic radius! It tends to decrease across a period and then increase down a group.

Atomic radius increases as group level increases and atomic radius decreases as you move across a period

Those are essentially all of the trends present on the periodic table. The only other ones are the atomic radius and metallic and nonmetallic character. The atomic radius is the measure of the size of an elements atoms. Metallic character refers to the level of reactivity of a metal and non metallic character relates to the tendency to accept electrons during chemical reactions.

Another trend is the atomic radius which increases as you go down the group and decrease from left to right.
