Solution: The process of removing an electron from a neutral element in the gas phase… a. requires energy for all elements, because the initial state is less stable than the final state. b. requires energy for all elements, because the initial state is more stable than the final state. c. does not require energy for any element, because the initial state is the same energy as the final state. d. requires energy for some elements, because sometimes the initial state is more stable than the final state.

Problem

The process of removing an electron from a neutral element in the gas phase…

a. requires energy for all elements, because the initial state is less stable than the final state.

b. requires energy for all elements, because the initial state is more stable than the final state.

c. does not require energy for any element, because the initial state is the same energy as the final state.

d. requires energy for some elements, because sometimes the initial state is more stable than the final state.
