Why does reactivity decrease in group 7?
This is because group 7 elements react by gaining an electron. As you move down the group, the amount of electron shielding increases, meaning that the electron is less attracted to the nucleus.
What happens to the reactivity of group 7 down the group?
Why do halogens get less reactive as we go down group 7?
Why does the reactivity increase in group 7?
What is the order of reactivity of halogens?
Why does the reactivity in group 1 increase but decrease down group 7?
Why do halogens get more reactive going up the group?
Which is the most reactive element in group 7?
What is the trend in group 7?
What are the properties of group 7 in the periodic table?
Why does reactivity increase down a group?
Why does reactivity decrease across a period?
Period – reactivity decreases as you go from left to right across a period. The farther to the left and down the periodic chart you go, the easier it is for electrons to be given or taken away, resulting in higher reactivity.
