What do successive ionisation energies provide evidence of?

the presence of shells and the number of electrons in each shell.

1 of 133

What is a shell/energy level?

a group of atomic orbitals with the same principal quantum number,n. Also known as the main energy level.

2 of 133

What is the principal quantum number, n?

a number representing the relative overall energy of each orbital, which increases with distance from the nucleus. The sets of orbitals with the same n-value are referred to as electron shells.

What expression is used to find out how many electrons each shell can hold?

2n^2 (2xn squared) i.e 1st shell, n=1 has 2x1x1= 2. 2nd shell, n=2 has 2x2x2=8
