Successive Ionisation Energies

In this video, we take a closer look at ionisation energy. We start by looking at the factors that affect ionisation energy. We then explore how successive ionisation energies give us information about how the electrons are arranged in electron shells. We then look at how we can use successive ionisation energies to determine the identity of an element, using the periodic table (this is a very common exam question)
