Lesson 10 Test - Atomic Size And The Periodic Table

Atoms, atomic number and size are factors that define an element and depending on the atomic size or number, an element can be placed as a solid, gas or liquid in a periodic table. This is a good challenge for you if you just studied the periodic table. Give it a shot!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    As one travels down through a family of elements, the size of the atoms of those elements
    • A. 

      Decreases as you go down due to the addition of new layers of electrons

    • B. 

      Increases as you go down due to the changes in orientation of electrons along the various axes.

    • C. 

      Increases in size as you go down due to the addition of new layers of electrons.

    • D. 

      Increases in size due to advanced electronic transmutations.

  • 2. 
    As one travels across a series or period of elements, the size of the atoms are those elements
    • A. 

      Decreases due to increased attraction between the positively charged nucleus and the negatively charged electrons.

    • B. 

      Increases due to the addition of layers of electrons as you move across the series.

    • C. 

      Increases due to the addition of neutrons, electrons, and protons
