The radius of an atom is approximately


Open in App
Solution

Atomic radius:

  1. In a molecule, an atomic radius is equal to half the distance between neighboring atoms of the same element.
  2. The smallest distance between an atom's nucleus and its outermost shell is known as the atomic radius.
  3. Considering that an atom's size is on the order of 1.2×10-10m, determining the atomic radii of chemical elements is a challenging undertaking.
  4. It is challenging to estimate the atomic size of an atom since the electron cloud that makes up the atom's shell has no set shape.
