Atomic radius decreases from left to right. Give reason

Asked by piyush.talreja7890 23rd January 2016, 7:35 PM
Answered by Expert

In a period, the size of an atom decreases from left to right. This is because the nuclear charge i.e. the atomic number increases from left to right in the same period, thereby bringing the outermost shell closer to the nucleus.
