6.5: Metallic Radii

  • Page ID
  • Atomic radius is the radius of an atom which measures the distant from its nucleus to the electron. And metallic radii are the radii of the metallic atoms. It is the size of a metallic atom. However the actually measurement of the radius is very vague because electrons don’t stay at one point, they orbits around.
