How does the ionisation energy of an atom affect the likelihood that it will undergo ionic bonding?
Ionisation energy is kind of annoying. I don't like this chapter at all. -_-

lower the ionisation energy increases the chances of the atom undergoing ionic bonding.
Edit: Lower ionisatin energy means that it's more likely to lose an electron, therefore become more +ve and it has a higher polarising power and it's more likely to become a cation...

ionic bonding will involve an atom losing or gaining an electron.....from ionisation enthalpy i guess the higher it is the less likely it will form an ionic bond ...............thats what i think
