Question: 810
Why is 2nd ionization energy of magnesium very high than its 1st ionization energy
Answer: 810
810-861
Second ionization energy of magnesium is very high than its first ionization energy . Because it becomes very difficult to remove second electron from the Mg- ions as the nuclear charge attracts the remaining electrons strongly
