Ionization in Chemistry

The good explaination of ionization in chemistry.

The reason: The reason to this is that the more right it goes on the periodic table, the larger the atom becomes. In an Atom it contain proton, electron and neutron. The element is balanced by equal number of proton and electron, which means they have attraction between them. As the size of the atom increase, the attraction of proton and electron decrease. This allows the electrons on the outer shell to be lost as proton are not able to have strong attraction to it.

 Metaphorically It can also be like this…

If you are struggling with the understanding of how this works lets use a metaphoric example.

Let’s say that the atom is a solar system. The sun is the proton, the planet that orbit around it are the electron. We know that the ones which are closer to the Sun have greater magnetic attractions to the ones far away. So the more far away from the Sun the less attraction the planet is and it is more likely to get drift away and get lost(of course in reality we know that is nearly impossible).

 Still confused? Then we can use an example that we are more familiar with. Let’s say there is a class that the teacher (which is the proton) is in the middle and students (which are the electron) are around the teacher. The students closer to the teacher are more able to be manage where as the students that is far away from the teacher are more harder to be in control because they can pass notes and play their PSP as teacher are paying attention to student closer to them.
