How the atomic size changes when we move from left to right in a period in modern periodic table ?

No comments

The atomic Size is an important property that governs various behaviours of an atom or an element, like valency , electronegativity and metallic character.

when we move from left to right the nuclear charge increases at every increase of atomic number. Due to increase in nuclear charge the electrons are attracted towards nucleus with more force, thus size decreases.
