    Say I had a potassium atom... The pull is less on thr outer electron because the other full shells are blocking the pull
    ohh so the other electrons 'shield' the attraction to the outer electron.... making the outer electron easier to lose ?

    its just ive never heard the term before :L

    Right:

    This morning my mother tried to grab me by the throat because we had an argument and I tried to walk out - and by reflex I grabbed her arm and shouted loudly at her "DON'T YOU ****ING DARE" and walked out - she had already hit me and I told her that she has no right hitting me - I don't hit her and she's meant to be my mother not.

    I did awfully in bio -and i was already not in a good frame of mind and I am still feeling like crap.

    In games I played terribly in badminton today.

    I got home and my dad was in a massive mood with me as I woke him up during the argument - which wasn't even ****ing fair - my mum was being a total *****. Also, my dad's bike is knackered and he blames me although I've only rode it twice, so I can't go cycling.

    I assume it wasn't a tournament? If it wasn't it's not that Bad!
    It's alright, whenever I have an argument with my family, spend some time on your own (I assume you are now) and I'm sure you'll be fine with them tomorrow. Just try and focus on studying for your exams.

    I think almost all the boys (The ones who've uploaded photos to social media, snapchat etc. anyway) are wearing grey suits and the one I have (the only suit I own, not intending to buy a suit just for prom) is black and a silver tie, do I just ignore it, or wear a grey shirt as well or something? Don't want to completely stand out

    Yeah!

    Because the shielding means it's less inclined to pull one in

    I'm sitting my English Literature GCSE soon with WJEC, I was wondering when you are comparing unseen poetry can you break it down bit by bit like talk about the structure of one and then the other and then make a comparing or point out the contrast between them, or do you have to link things such and language and link back to meaning of the poem? Instead of going through it one by one,like structure, meaning, Imagery, Language and effect on reader...? Any help would be much appreciated!

    Ahh we didn't call it shielding.
    I learnt that the Alkali metals increase in reactivity because their shell number increases and so theres less of an attraction (electrostatic?) between the outer electrons and the positive nuclei... So they're more likely to lose electrons and vice versa. This is all probably wrong but vice versa for halogens... They're less reactive down the group.... I'm wrong. Lol

    I have French but my RS is next Tuesday. I really hope they don't put some obscure topic in the listening, but it is OCR, they've done listenings about a woman hiding in a man's cupboard and eating his food in the night...
    :eek: Anyway good luck!

    yeah I knew it .. but when I saw a practice question saying explain shielding in group 1 ... I knew it, but didn't know that what shielding meant
