How does the phenomenon of electron capture affect the ionisation potential of an electron within the atom?
Since the electron being captured reacts with one proton in the nucleus to give a neutron(which has a charge of $0C$) and one neutrino, I am being lead to believe that this reduction of charge causes the attraction between the electrons in the atom and the nucleus to decrease, which causes the I.P to decrease as well. Am I correct?
Edit: Please note that I have only just graduated high school.
Any help would be appreciated. Much thanks in advance :) Regards.
