a) Explain what is meant by the term ionisation energy.
b) The table below gives the values of the first ionisation energies for selected elements. Comment on and interpret the variations evident in these data.
Element 1 t ionisation Energy (kJ mol-1)
C) What structures do the solid forms of the elements sodium, silicon and sulphur adopt under ambient conditions (i.e. standard temperature and pressure)? How are the structures and electrical conductivities of these
elements related to their first ionisation energies?
