Why is the biggest jump between the 6th and 7th ionisation energy?
(I worked it out myself lol)
Successive ionisation energies of Oxygen watch

1s2 2s2 2p6, during the 6th ionization electrons are lost from the 2p orbital however in the 7th ionization electrons are lost from the 2s orbital, these electrons feel nuclear charge more, stronger attraction blah blah
