FREE Expert Solution

We´re asked to write a chemical equation that represents the third ionization energy for lithium (Li).


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

First I.E.corresponds to removing thfirst valence electron from a neutral atom

• Second I.E.refers to removing a second electron

Third I.E.refers to removing the third electron
