would be the larger atom? Which would be most reactive?
a. Na and K
b. Al and Mg
4. List atoms of the following elements from smallest to largest.
C K Mg Ne O Si
5. In general terms, where in the periodic table are the most reactive metals? The most reactive nonmetals? The most unreactive elements?
6. How do the reactivities in question 5 relate to the size of the atoms of the elements?
