Why is ionization potential considered a periodic property??? A periodic property is a one which appears at regular property But we see that every element has some kind of ionization potential

The ionization energy is described as the energy required to remove an electron from an atom in the gaseous phase. Apart from some exceptions, it is possible to identify a general trend in ionization energies within the periodic table: moving from left to right in a period the ionization energy increases, whereas it decreases from top to bottom in a group.
