Solution :-

Carbon's ionisation enthalpy (1086 kJ/mol) is quite high. In light of its modest size, this is not surprising at all. The enthalpy of silicon, on the other hand, plummets dramatically (786 kJ). This is due to the fact that the atomic size of elements increases as you move down the group.
