AS Chemistry - Ionisation Energy

Define First Ionisation Energy
The energy needed to remove one electron from each atom in one mole of gaseous atoms to form one mole of gaseous 1+ ions.
1 of 10
Define successive ionisation energy
The energy required to remove each electron in turn.
2 of 10
Where is the first electron removed from, explain your answer.
The outer shell as this is the highest energy electron.
3 of 10
Explain why ionisation is always an endothermic process.
Energy is required to overcome attraction between positive nucleus and the negative outer electron which is being removed.

decreases
8 of 10
Across a period, ionisation energy..
increases
9 of 10
State and explain the general trend in successive ionisation energies
 As each electron is removed ionisation energy increases because  the proton: electron ratio increases, this tends to increase ionisation energy  the remaining electrons are closer to the nucleus, this tends to increase ionisation energy 
