  • 4. Successive ionization energies of Li and B in kJ/mole

    IE1 IE2 IE3
    Li 520 7298 11815
    B 800 2427 3660
    The second ionization energies of Li and B are very high compared to 1st ionization energies. The reason for this is

    • a)  Noble gas configuration of Li+ and B+
    • b)  Completely filled 's' orbitals in Li+ and B+
    • c)  Noble gas configuration of Li+ and completely filled 's' configuration of B
    • d)  Completely filled 's' configuration of Li+ and Noble gas configuration of B+
