Solution: Choose the element with the highest first ionization energy from each of the following pairs.Na or Rb

Problem

Choose the element with the highest first ionization energy from each of the following pairs.

Na or Rb

Solution

We are asked to choose the element with the highest first ionization energy between Na or Rb.

Ionization energy is the energy required to remove an electron from a gaseous atom or ion.

The trend of the ionization energies of the elements can be observed in the periodic table:

increases going from left to right of a period
