    Hi. I'm still on GCSE, but I was reading some things in my free time that led me into polarisation and charge density. So I was wondering- would you say charge density is a factor that affects reactivity of metal ions??

    EDIT: Sorry, have not read your post carefully.

    The charge density in terms of ions means the charge per volume. So the ratio of those quantities for ions determine the charge density. The greater the charge density of an (metal) ion in comparison to another one, the greater the attraction and thus the reactivity of those ions each other. This goes for both the positive and negative charge.
