## Which ion has the largest atomic radius?

K+, Cl, and S2 form an isoelectronic series with the [Ar] closed-shell electron configuration; that is, all three ions contain 18 electrons but have different nuclear charges. Because K+ has the greatest nuclear charge (Z = 19), its radius is smallest, and S2 with Z = 16 has the largest radius.

## Which has the largest radius?

francium
Atomic radii vary in a predictable way across the periodic table. As can be seen in the figures below, the atomic radius increases from top to bottom in a group, and decreases from left to right across a period. Thus, helium is the smallest element, and francium is the largest.

## What is a larger ionic radius?

Ionic size (for the same ion) also increases with increasing coordination number, and an ion in a high-spin state will be larger than the same ion in a low-spin state. In general, ionic radius decreases with increasing positive charge and increases with increasing negative charge.

## Which of the following ion is the largest in size?

The correct option is : d S2-Explanation:Since all of these ions contain 18 electrons each so these are isoelectronic. For isoelectronic ions smaller the positive nuclear charge greater is the size of the ion.

## Which isoelectronic ion has the largest radius?

K+, Cl, and S2 form an isoelectronic series with the [Ar] closed-shell electron configuration; that is, all three ions contain 18 electrons but have different nuclear charges. Because K+ has the greatest nuclear charge (Z = 19), its radius is smallest, and S2 with Z = 16 has the largest radius.

## Which one of the ion has smallest radius?

So, in the end, we can conclude that nickel ions have a minimum radius.

## Which ion has the largest radius Cl F K+ cu2+?

In other words, K+ has bigger effective nuclear charge than Cl− , which translates to a bigger net positive charge felt by the outermost electrons. This will compress the energy levels a bit and make the ionic radius smaller for the potassium cation. Therefore, the chloride anion will have the larger atomic radius.

## Is O or O2 larger?

However, the two species have different numbers of electrons, O has 8 while O2− has 10. This means that the latter has larger orbitals and less tightly held outer electrons. Therefore, O2− has a larger atomic radius.

## Is RB+ bigger than Sr2+?

Smaller atoms allow for less distance between atoms, so electrons can be easily distorted in a molecule, and a higher charge will allow it to have a stronger pull ability to distort the other electrons. Thus the order from decreasing to increasing is Rb+, Sr2+, Be2+.

## What is the radius of Ca2+?

Metallic, Covalent and Ionic Radii(r)*
Atom/Ion r(pm)
Ca 197
Ca2+ 100
Cd 152
Cd2+ 95

## Which ion is bigger K+ or Cl?

The k+ ion will be smaller than the Cl- ion. Because of the fact that it pull the electrons closer because of its + charge. In other words, K+ has bigger effective Nuclear charge than Cl- , which translates to a bigger net positive Charge felt by the outermost electrons.

## Which ion has the larger ionic radius Ca2+ or Cl −?

The effective nuclear charge of Ca2+ is greater than that of Cl-. Attraction force between valence electrons and nucleus of Ca2+ is stronger than that of Cl-. So, the radius of Ca2+ is smaller than that of Cl-.

## Which has a larger radius CA or Ca2+?

For a) the neutral Ca atom has a larger radius than the Ca2+ ion. This is because the loss of electrons reduces the shielding effect between the electrons and the nucleus, so the attraction of the nucleus for the electrons is greater, reducing the radius.
