larger


Does an atom of fluorine have larger or smaller radius than an atom of iodine?

Smaller


Is a negative ion smaller or larger than its parent 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.


Is cation larger than its parent atom?

No. It is smaller.


Are cations larger than the original atom?

No, they are smaller.


Is the ion RB plus larger or smaller than the neutral atom?

Smaller


Is an atom smaller than a neutrons?

An atom is larger than a neutron; a neutron is a part of any atom except a hydrogen atom.


Is a cadmium atom larger or smaller than a mercury 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 larger than an atom?

an electron is much much smaller than an atom. An electron is a portion of the nucleus in an atom.


When an atom of chlorine forms an ionic bond with an atom of sodium does the atom of chlorine become an ion with a smaller or larger radius than the atom of chlorine?

It becomes an ion with a larger radius than the atom of chlorine


Is an atom smaller than an atomic nucleus?

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!!)


Is a cation larger or smaller than a neutral element?

Cation is always smaller than corresponding neutral atom.


An atom of scandium is larger or smaller than an atom of titanium?

Scandium is slightly larger than Titanium due to one unit less nuclear charge.


Is a positive ion larger or smaller than an atom?

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. =]


Is a positive ion larger or smaller than its parent atom?

A positive ion is smaller than the parent atom.


Is an electron much larger than an atom?

No, since electrons are part of an atom, they are smaller -- much smaller. In fact, they weigh practically nothing.


Is a rubidium larger or smaller than a neutral atom?

Rubidium is a neutral atom in its elemental form. The rubidium ion, found in rubidium compounds, is smaller than a neutral rubidium atom.


Is a sodium ion larger or smaller than the sodium atom?

A sodium ion has two electronic shells while sodium three so ion is smaller than atom.


Is a positive ion smaller or larger than its parent 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.
