I noticed that there is a relationship between the ionic radius and the atomic number of the representative elements in Group 1A. The higher the atomic number, the bigger the ionic radius is. So, while hydrogen has an atomic number of 1 and Francium has an atomic number of 87, it is safe to assume that FR has a higher ionic radius. This is true; the ionic radius for Hydrogen is 0.012, and for Francium, it is 0.194. The electrons that are gained or lost effect the ionic radius. If there is a positive charge, it would decrease the radius because that loses an electron. Whereas, if you had a negative charge, it would increase the radius because now there's an extra electron. I noticed that there's a relationship between the first ionization
