Periodic Trends: Ionization Energy, Atomic Radius & Ionic Radius (5 Favorites)

SIMULATION in Periodic Table, Atoms, Model of the Atom, Valence Electrons, Subatomic Particles, Atomic Radius, Ionic Radius, Ionization Energy, Electrons, Ions. Last updated October 28, 2019.


In this simulation, students can investigate the periodic trends of atomic radius, ionization energy, and ionic radius. By choosing elements from the periodic table, atoms can be selected for a side by side comparison and analysis. Students can also attempt to ionize an atom by removing its valence electrons. Quantitative data is available for each periodic trend, and can be further examined in a graph.

This simulation was developed through generous funding provided by the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation.
