Hon Chemistry 2-8-12 Ionic Radii & Electronegativity

HON CHEMISTRY – Hey guys, here’s the lecture on valence electrons and how you find the possible ion charge of an atom. Three things to get straight – valence electrons, how many electrons an atom gains or loses, and how that relates to the charge of the atom. Also today we talked about the last periodic trends – ionic radii and electronegativity. Have you begun to notice a trend among the trends? Don’t forget Linus Pauling!
