Ok my question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what is the difference between the binding energies of these 2 types of atoms, conceptual wise, which one is greater?

I am assuming based on the easy calculations of the potential energy of the finite size atom ( inside and outside)

There is a difference between the potential energies of those 2 regions, and just because of that difference. It's easier to ionize the atom.

Am I correct?

Thank You
