Why do noble gases have comparatively large atomic sizes?
Noble gases have comparatively large atomic sizes as their shells are completely filled with electrons and they have a stable configuration due to this completely filled electronic configuration
Electrons tend to be away from each other so as to reduce the electronic repulsion leading to the larger size of the noble gases.
The atomic radius of the noble gases is determined by vader waals radius which is comparatively greater than covalent or ionic radii.
