In an isoelectric series (series of ions and atoms with the same number of
electrons) cations are always smaller because the ratio between Protons and
electrons is larger, meaning it has a more effective nucleus charge. The nucleus has a
greater pull on the outer-shell electrons, making the atomic radii smaller that the
neutral and anion counterparts.
