A basketball is made out of atoms.
A positive ion is smaller than its neutral atom.
Larger because a negative ion contains more electrons than its parent atom therefore it is larger. A positive ion would be smaller because it has less electrons than its parent atom.
No. It is smaller.
No, they are smaller.
An atom is larger than a neutron; a neutron is a part of any atom except a hydrogen atom.
The radius of a cadmium atom is smaller than the radium of a mercury atom. The trend for atomic radius is that the radius becomes larger toward the left side of the row and toward the bottom of the group.
an electron is much much smaller than an atom. An electron is a portion of the nucleus in an atom.
It becomes an ion with a larger radius than the atom of chlorine
An atom comprises an atomic nucleus with orbiting electrons. So the nucleus is smaller than an atom. To phrase it the opposite way, an atom is alwys larger than the nucleus (of the same atom of course!!)
Cation is always smaller than corresponding neutral atom.
Scandium is slightly larger than Titanium due to one unit less nuclear charge.
We are working on this in Physical Science class. A negative ion is larger then its parent atom. A positive ion is smaller then its parent atom. =]
A positive ion is smaller than the parent atom.
No, since electrons are part of an atom, they are smaller -- much smaller. In fact, they weigh practically nothing.
Rubidium is a neutral atom in its elemental form. The rubidium ion, found in rubidium compounds, is smaller than a neutral rubidium atom.
A sodium ion has two electronic shells while sodium three so ion is smaller than atom.
A positive ion, or cation, is smaller than its parent atom. Cations have electrons in a lower valence shell than their parent atom and have a higher effective nuclear charge.
