Why does atomic radius decrease as you move out a period?
Stronger attractive forces in atoms (as you go from left to right) between the opposite charges in the nucleus and electron cloud cause the atom to be ‘sucked’ together a little tighter.
Why does atomic radius increase as you move down a family?
There is a significant jump in the size of the nucleus (protons + neutrons) each time you move from period to period down a group. Additionally, new energy levels of elections clouds are added to the atom as you move from period to period down a group, making the each atom significantly more massive, both in mass and volume.
Why does electronegativity increase as you move out a period?
Elements on the left of the period table have 1 -2 valence electrons and would rather give those few valence electrons away (to achieve the octet in a lower energy level) than grab another atom’s electrons. As a result, they have low electronegativity. Elements on the right side of the period table only need a few electrons to complete the octet, so they have strong desire to grab another atom’s electrons.
Why does electronegativity decrease as you move down a group?
Elements near the top of the period table have few electrons to begin with; every electron is a big deal. They have a stronger desire to acquire more electrons. Elements near the bottom of the chart have so many electrons that loosing or acquiring an electron is not as big a deal. This is due to the shielding affect where electrons in lower energy levels shield the positive charge of the nucleus from outer electrons resulting in those outer electrons not being as tightly bound to the atom.
Why does first ionization energy increase as you move out a period?
Elements on the right of the chart want to take others atom’s electron (not given them up) because they are close to achieving the octet. The means it will require more energy to remove the outer most electron. Elements on the left of the chart would prefer to give up their electrons so it is easy to remove them, requiring less energy (low ionization energy).
Why does first ionization energy decrease as you move down a group?
The shielding affect makes it easier to remove the outer most electrons from those atoms that have many electrons (those near the bottom of the chart).
Refers to how likely or vigorously an atom is to react with other substances.

How does nonmetallic reactivity change as you move out a period?
Increases
How does nonmetallic reactivity change as you move down a group?
Decreases
Why does metallic reactivity decrease as you move out a period?
The farther to the left, the easier it is for electrons to be given or taken away, resulting in higher reactivity.
Why does metallic reactivity increase as you move down a group?
The farther down the periodic chart you go, the easier it is for electrons to be given or taken away, resulting in higher reactivity.
Why does nonmetallic reactivity increase as you move out a period?
The farther right you go on the periodic table, the higher the electronegativity, resulting in a more vigorous exchange of electron.
Why does nonmetallic reactivity decrease as you down a group?
The farther up you go on the periodic table, the higher the electronegativity, resulting in a more vigorous exchange of electron.
