Name a common periodic table trend and state why it trends the way it does.
One trend is atomic size, with decreasing atomic size to the right and towards the top of the periodic table. Each row increases by 1 quantum electron shell, thus growing in size as you proceed downward, and as you proceed to the right the elements become smaller because there are increasing atomic forces interacting between the negative electron shell and positive nucleus.
