  • Successive ionisation = Amount of energy needed to remove each electron in turn until all the electrons are removed from an atom
  • Sodium had 11 electrons, so it has 11 successive ionisation energies

Successive ionisation energies always increase because:

1. As each electron is removed there is less electron repulsion and each shell
