What is the relationship between diagonal relationship of an element and the polarizing power of an element?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 14th Aug, 2014, 01:15: PM
On moving along a period, the ionic charge increases while ionic size decreases so polarizing power increases. On moving down the group the ionic size increases and hence polarizing power decreases. On moving diagonally these two effects cancel each other to some extent and hence the properties remain similar.
