Energy of second ionisation

Besides the energy of the first ionisation, which indicates how difficult it is to remove the first electron from an atom, there is also an energy measure for second ionisation. This energy of second ionisation indicates the degree of difficulty to remove the second atom.

As such, there is also the energy of a third ionisation, and sometimes even the energy of a fourth or fifth ionisation.
