Hi there in this question, we have five elements and we want to arrange those in order of increasing atomic radius. So we have calcium followed by lithium carbon or on and potassium. Okay, so I have a periodic table here because we want to talk about the periodic trend for atomic radius as you are moving across a period, the atomic radius decreases. This is because we keep adding with each step we add another proton to the nucleus which pulls those outermost electrons in closer. So as you go across the atomic radius decreases, moving down a group, we keep adding energy levels. So the atomic radius increases. Alright so what that means then if we if we go ahead and put these two together, that means we’re going to find the largest atomic radius in the bottom left corner and the smallest atomic radius in the upper right corner. Alright, so let’s look at where each of these atoms are on the periodic table.…
