General inorganic chemistry ionization energy

General inorganic chemistry ionization energy 

The ionization energy (IE) is qualitatively defined as the amount of energy required to remove the most loosely bound electron, the valence electron, of an isolated gaseous atom to form a cation. this is an endothermic process.

Factors governing the ionization enthalpy

1) Nuclear charge

2)Atomic size

3)Penetration effect of the electrons

4)Screening effect of inner electrons

5)Effect of exactly half filled and completely filled orbitals
