Why is the polarizing power from least to greatest Na+, Mg2+, Li+, Be2+? I get why Na+ is the least and Be2+ is the greatest but I do not get why Li+ would be greater than Mg2+. Li+ is larger than Mg2+ according to the diagram of ionic radii in 1F.3 7th Edition and it has a lesser charge, so wouldn't it have a smaller polarizing power than Mg2+? Please help me.
