Problem

Of the following atoms, which has the largest first ionization energy?

A) Br

B) O

C) C

D) P

E) I

Solution

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
