Ionization Potentials, Proton, Electron, Elements
The first 20 Elements (from H to Ca) are investigated regarding their binding or ionization potentials. Normally only a few binding energies are mentioned in periodic tables. But i found a table from 1 which contained a lot of binding energies and for the first 20 elements this table is complete. It turned out that all elements have a very similar behaviour.
They show a periodic or sequential behaviour if one electron after another is removed. But in the end, this is explainable if one assumes a more geometric reason. This periodical behaviour typically shows a length of 2 or 8 removals. After these periods there is always a bigger jump in energy. And to remove the last electron this energy is always connected to 13,6 eV. It is very likely that trapped elektrons have a shape like a shell or a geometrical structure surrounding the nucleus.
