    1) Which ion is smaller? F- or Na+

    2) For isoelectronic ions, how are effective nuclear charge and ionic radius related?
    As nuclear charge (Z) increases, ionic radius increases or
    As nuclear charge (Z) increases, ionic radius decreases.

    3) For the elements with the electron affinities given in the table in the introduction, which element is most likely to accept an electron? Ca, F or N

    4) Rank the following elements by electron affinity, from most positive to most negative value:
    Rank from most positive to most negative. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them. They are: Chlorine, cesium, helium, bismuth, tellurium
