The atomic radius describes the size of the atom, and although there is no standard definition for the value, it is the distance between the nucleus and the outermost electrons. Atomic radii tend to increase moving down ... More »

The atomic radius of an atom is determined by the total number of electrons, electron shells and protons in an atom. Protons are located in the nucleus of an atom and create an effective nuclear charge. Electrons within ... More »

The term "atomic radius" refers to the measured distance between the nucleus of an atom and the furthest orbiting electron. The outermost electron is referred to as a valance electron. The effective nuclear charge of an ... More »

Moving across periods on the periodic table from left to right, the atoms tend decrease in radius size because each atom has more protons than the atom before it, meaning there is more of an attractive force in the nucle... More »

A metallic radius is the measurement of an atom's size with regards to metal elements only. Metallic elements are most easily measured because of even distribution and distance between adjacent atoms, according to Purdue... More »
