Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all those elements come from Period 2, so this is actually very easy. Do you know what ionization energy is a measure of?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ionization energy is a measure of how difficult it is to remove an electron from an atom. In general, atoms with few valence electrons "dont' mind" losing them, where atoms with several valence electrons "don't want" to lose them, since they're close to being full. The atoms with the highest IE will always be on the right hand side of the periodic table

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Oh wait, I think I got it. Up and Right is the highest. So...ranking them would look like from highest to lowest might look like: Ne, F, O, N, C, B, Be, Li. Would this be correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sorry for the bad grammar above, I was excited because I figure out the method.
