Periodic Table Test Review
I. Identify the increasing trend for each of the trends listed.
Briefly describe what each trend is indicating.
a. Ionization Energy
c. Atomic Radius
d. Ionic Radius
Ionization Energy Electronegativity
What is it? What is it?
The energy needed to remove an electron The desire of one element to attract electrons in
a chemical bond
I NC AS
What is it? Ionic Radius
The distance from the nucleus to the valence What is it?
shell The distance from the nucleus to the valence
shell of an ion
II. Explain each of the following.
a. Why the Ionic Radius is different for metals and nonmetals
Because of the gaining of extra e- in nonmetals and the losing of e- in metals
b. Why does Ionization Energy change from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Period.
Due to the increasing number of orbits that shield the attraction from the Nucleus.
c. What causes electronegativity.
Atoms that want to gain stability through a full valence shell. To do this they attempt to attract
neighboring electrons found in chemical bonds.

VI. Fill in the blanks using vocabulary terms from unit three.
Periods 1. Horizontal rows on the periodic table are called __.
Groups 2. Vertical columns on the periodic table are called __.
Families 3. Groups are often called __ because the elements
behave similarly to each other.
Metalloid 4. If an element has properties of both metals and
nonmetals it is known as a __.
Ionization Energy 5. The amount of energy required to remove an electron
from the valence shell of an atom is known as __.
Electronegativity 6. The tendency for an atom to attract electrons to itself
when bonding with another element.
Ion 7. When an atom gains or loses electrons it becomes this.
Anion 8. If an atom gains electrons it becomes a(n) __.
Cation 9. If an atom loses electrons it becomes a(n) __.
Valence Electrons 10. Electrons in the outermost energy level are known as
Octet Rule 11. Atoms react by gaining or losing electrons so as to
acquire the stable electron structure of a noble gas.
(Usually 8 valence electrons) This is called the __.
Atomic Number 12. The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom is
known as the __.
Atomic Mass 13. The number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of
an atom is known as the __.
D. Mendleev_______ 14. He published the first periodic table.
VII. Trends of the Periodic Table – Write increase or decrease on each line.
Periodic Table Trend As you go down the table… As you go across the table… (left
Atomic Number and Mass I I
Atomic Radius I D
Ionization Energy D I
Metallic Character I D
Electronegativity D I
VIII. Short Answer – Answer the following in complete sentences.
1. State the Periodic Law.
law stating that many of the physical and chemical properties of the elements tend to recur in a
systematic manner with increasing atomic number.
2. Explain why the atomic radius increases as you go down the periodic table.
Atomic Radius increases as you go down the periodic table due to the increasing number of
orbits. If the valence shell possess few electrons you will have a larger radius because the
shielding effect of the inner orbits on the nucleus. The shielding does not allow the nucleus to
attract the valence electrons causing a larger radius.
3. Explain why ionization energy decreases as you go down the periodic table.
Ionization energy decreases as you move down the periodic table due to the shielding of valence
electrons by inner shells. Also, the fewer valence electrons an atom has the less it wants to hold on to
them. An atom would choose to lose valence electrons in order to gain stability.
4. Why are the noble gases so unreactive?
Full valence shell

Write out the activity series with the catalysts for each.
