FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to identify where the "jump" or the sudden significant increase in ionization energy occurs for each atom. 

Ionization energy (I. E.) is the energy required to remove an electron from a gaseous atom or ion.

First I.E. corresponds to removing thfirst valence electron from a neutral atom

 Second I.E. refers to removing a second electron

 Third I.E. refers to removing a third electron.
