Title: Periodic trends of several measured quantities
Caption: The periodic trends of several measured quantities is shown.
Notes: Many measured atomic properties including atomic radius, ionization energy, and electron affinity have a general trend in their values as you move through the periodic table. These periodic trends arise from the structure and filling of electronic orbitals. Knowing these trends, qualitative comparisons can be made regarding the relative magnitudes of the measured atomic properties.
Keywords: periodic trends, atomic radius, ionization energy, electron affinity, metallic character
