11 Ionization Energy Example: Detailed Explanations

In this article “Ionization energy examples” with their detailed explanations are derived. The meaning of higher ionization energy means facing the difficulty to subtract any electron from the chemical bonds.

11 + ionization energy examples are listed below,

Fluorescent lamp:

Fluorescent lamp is a very light weight vapor lamp which inside mercury is present. In the fluorescent lamp fluoresce is placed for this reason visible light is delivered.  Fluorescent lamp works in electric current. When electric current is deliver to the fluorescent lamp that time gas is energized the vapor of mercury from this ultraviolet radiation is emitted and the radiation of ultraviolet objective the coating of the phosphor in the liner wall of the lamp.

Fluorescent lamp main parts:


Inside the fluorescent lights two set electrodes are situated. The electrodes in fluorescent lights are attached with the fixture through two small size metal prongs. These prongs are clearly visible to the outside of the fluorescent lights. In the CFLs electrodes are not visible from the outer side because its base is screw type.


Only in the older type fluorescent lights have the component name starter. These starters are small metal cylinder. The starters of the fluorescent lights cause the delay of the electricity to the gas tube.

In the tube of the fluorescent light gas is placed. The usual fluorescent lights are tube shaped into the straight cylinder. In the CFLs, compact fluorescent light have a tube which is bending and look like U letter. In neon lights tubes are looks like words or graphics.


In the fluorescent light tube some gases are inset such as argon, xenon, neon and also vapor of mercury is placed. Gas of the fluorescent light is help to discharging the light. When a particular amount of voltage is applied the atoms of the ionized gas is charged and excited. At this moment proton of the ionized gas atoms also excited.

Phosphor coating:-

With the help of a metal named phosphor the inside tube of fluorescent light is coated. The coatings of the phosphor affect the colour emitting of the fluorescent light.


In the fluorescent light the ballast can be two types one is electronic and another one is magnetic. In the new type of fluorescent light only the electronic ballast is present it is not too loud or hot like magnetic ballast.

Advantages of fluorescent lamp:-

  • Low heat radiation
  • Lower power consumption
  • Longer life
  • Not required warning up period
  • Good quality of light
  • Higher efficiency

Disadvantages of fluorescent lamp:-

  • Initial cost is high
  • Fluctuation of voltage is affected
  • Produce radio interface
  • Sometime light output is fluctuating

Electrical bulbs:

Electrical bulb is actually a simplest version of an electrical lamp. The electrical bulb is actually a very small size and simple light source which helps to brighten the dark place. The other name of the electrical bulb is incandescent bulb.

Application of Electrical bulb:-

  • In portable lighting the electrical bulb is widely used such as table lamps
  • In vehicle headlights and lights the electrical bulb is used
  • Commercial lighting
  • Household lighting
  • Advertising and decoration the electrical bulb is used.

Advantages of Electrical blub:-

  • No harassment in installation
  • Longer life period
  • Economical
  • Affordable
  • Easily available in verities shapes and sizes
  • Working period is also high
  • High output

Disadvantages of Electrical blub:-

  • Energy insufficient
  • Produce warm light
  • Need to handle very carefully because it is made of glass thus can brake easily
  • Breakable parts are very sharp can cut in the skin
  • Inside the electrical bulb mercury, argon is present for this reason the electrical bulb should be handle carefully.


Materials which are made of plastic they are attacked by chemical reaction and salvation. The process method of salvation only happened with polar solvents. The concept of salvation is distinct from solubility and dissolution.

Solvation can be explain as, the method in which chemical association is present between the solvent and molecules of solute.

The factors which are affecting solubility,

  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Surface area
  • ph
  • Nature of Solvent/Solute

Calcium nitride:

The formula of the calcium nitride is Ca3N2. The molar mass of the calcium nitride is 148.25 gram per mol. The calcium nitride can present in a lots of state.

Free radicals:

A definition of free radical is any molecular house is capable to contain electron in unpaired state independently. Radicals can be present in two state one is unstable and another is highly reactive.

The radical can give an electron to other molecules or can take electron from other molecules. When the radical can give an electron to other molecules that time it behave like oxidants and when the radical can take an electron from other molecules that time it behave like reluctant.

Some sources name of the free radicals is listed below,

  • Exercise
  • Smoking
  • Mitochondria
  • Inflammation
  • Phagocytosis
  • Ozone
  • Radiation
  • Pesticides
  • Pollutions of the environments
  • Industrial solvents
  • Xanthine oxidase

Condensation reactions:

The condensation reactions are a part of chemical reactions. In condensation reactions smaller size molecules join together and make a larger size molecule. In the condensation reactions monomers means the smaller size molecules made a bond and name colavent bond and this bond is allow the joining the molecules and to make larger molecules.

The examples of condensation reactions are Glucose, Galactose.

The formula of condensation reactions is,

AH + BOH ­-> AB +H2O


A = The molecules in condensation reactions is condensed

B = The molecules in condensation reactions is condensed

AB = Compound product in condensation reactions

Sodium chloride:

The regular salt chemical name is sodium chloride. Sodium chloride is an electrolyte and helps to regulate the total quantity of water in our human body. But this chemical element also causes lot of problem in human body. They are listed below,

  • Diseases of liver
  • Diseases of kidney
  • Congestive heart failure
  • High blood pressure
  • Fluid retention

Sodium Chloride preparation process:

When chloride and sodium mixed together then it is response to generate sodium chloride.

The formula in below,

2 Na (s) + Cl2 -> 2NaCl (s)


The hydrogen is a family member of chemical elements. It is a tasteless, colourless, odourless, flammable gaseous matter. The atom of the hydrogen contain a nucleus which surrounding have proton bearing which have the charge of positive electrical charge and an electron bearing is present which have the charge of negative electrical charge. In the whole universe hydrogen is one of the most abundant matters.

Three isotopes are present in the hydrogen. The isotope mass 1 is called protium and it symbol is H, and written as H1,  The isotope mass 2 is called deuterium and a nucleus is present which contain one proton one neutron and it symbol is d, and written as H2, The isotope mass 3 is called tritium and it symbol is t, and written as H3 and its nucleus has one proton two neutrons.
