how does polarisability depend on size of molecule?

Expert Answer:

The greater the distance of electrons from nuclear charge, the less control the nuclear charge has on the charge distribution, and thus the increased polarizability of the atom.
Elongated molecules have electrons that are easily moved increasing their polarizability
