Homework Help: Effect of electron addition to various properties of atom

  1. Oct 9, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Describe what happens to the ionization energy, electronegativity and atomic radius as electrons occupy the next sub level.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    My (probably incorrect) answers:
    Ionization Energy: As electrons occupy the next sub level, the ionization energy decreases.
    Electronegativity: As electrons occupy the next sub level, the electronegativity decreases.
    Atomic Radius: As electrons occupy the next sub level, the atomic radius increases.
