In period 2, elements X is to the right of element Y. Then, find which of the elements have :i) Low nuclear chargeii) Low atomic sizeiii) High ionization energyiv) High electronegativityv) More metallic character
X is to the right of Y. So they will be YX.1) Low nuclear charge : Nuclear charge increases from left to right in a period. So Y has low nuclear charge.ii) Low atomic size : Atomic size decreases from left to right in a period. So X has low atomic size.iii) High ionization energy : Ionization energy increases across a period from left to right. So X has high ionization energy.iv) More metallic character : Metallic nature decreases from left to right. So Y has more metallic character.
