23. The removal of an electron from an atom results in the formation of a cation, whereas gain of an electron leads to an anion. The ionic radii can be estimated by measuring the distances between cations and anions in ionic crystals. A cation is smaller than its parent atom because it has fewer electrons while its nuclear change remains the same. The size of an anion will be larger than that of the parent atom because the addition of one or more electrons would result in increased repulsion among the electrons and a decrease in effective nuclear charge. When we find some atoms and ions which contain the same number of electrons, we call them isoelectronic species.

Now answer the following questions :

(i) Arrange the following ions in the order to increasing size

Be2+, Cl, Na+, Mg2+

(ii) In which of the following pairs, which species has a larger size ‘? [Value Based Question] [4]

(i) Br or Br, (ii) O2- or F (iii) Li+ or Na+ (iv) P or As.
