A metallic radius is the measurement of an atom’s size with regards to metal elements only. One half of the distance between nuclei of two neighbouring atoms of a metal is called as metallic radii.
Points to Remember:
- The distance of each atom will be same because group of atoms are from the same metal.
- Metallic Radii decrease across the period because of increase in the effective nuclear charge.
- Metallic Radius increases down the group because new shell is added.
- Metallic radii are always biggest for the highest coordination number.
