A Iron ionisation energy value query

  1. Jun 27, 2016 #1
    I'm looking at fe ionisation. Wherever I look I get similar values. Probably because everybody just keeps reusing published values...
    I think the value for the 24 th level is incorrect but I'm not sure how to validate this.
    The published value is 195200 but I think it should be more like 197400.
    Any pointer to a definitive source would be appreciated.

    Why do you think it should be 197400? And where does the other value come from?
