Ionization means to extract an electron. So the first IE means removing 1 electron from lithium: Li --> Li+ + 1 e - The product is a + ion because it now has more protons than electrons. The 2nd ionization energy is removing a 2nd electron from that resulting cation Li+ --> Li2+ + 1e - So that the 3 of IE ???? (I bet you can find out now, right?)
